The facilities of many of the state educational institutions 
of the South have in recent years been increased by substan- 
tial gifts. With deep gratitude the University acknowledges 
that it also has profited by this generosity. It feels confident 
that other broad-minded persons v^^ill desire to help in its 
upbuilding. All gifts, of whatever nature or value, will be 
gladly received and acknowledged. 

Chair of Secondary Education. — This opportunity is taken 
of acknowledging the annual gift by the General Education 
Board, of New York, of seventeen hundred and fifty dollars 
($1,750) toward the establishment and maintenance of a Pro- 
fessorship of Secondary Education. 

Instructorship of Spanish and South American Affairs. — 
The University gratefully acknowledges the gift from the Car- 
negie "Foundation for International Peace of nine hundred 
dollars ($900), used in securing the services of a teacher of 
Spanish and of "South American Affairs" in the Summer 
School, sessions of 1915, 1916, and of 1917. 

Instructorship^ of Bird-Study. — This opportunity is taken 
of thanking the National Association of Audubon Societies 
for making it possible to offer a course in Bird-Study dur- 
ing the 1915-1917 sessions of the Summer School. 

Scholarships. — No method of contributing to the spread of 
higher education is wiser or more beneficent than to give 
a worthy and ambitious young man the opportunity of avail- 
ing himself of the advantages offered by his state university. 
The establishment of several scholarships is gratefully 
acknowledged. A list of these and the names of the donors 
will be found on pages 32 and 33. 




Beginning with its territorial days Florida has always 
manifested interest in higher education, and with this in 
mind has formulated many plans and established many insti- 
tutions. As early as 1824 the foundation of a university was 
discussed by the Legislative Council. In 1836 trustees for 
a proposed university were named, but these seem to have 
accomplished nothing. (Memoirs of Florida, 1,168.) 

Upon its admission to the Union in 1845, the State was 
granted by the general government nearly a hundred thou- 
sand acres of land, the proceeds from which were to be used 
to establish two seminaries, one east and one west of the 
Suwannee River. This led to the foundation at Ocala in 1852 
of the East Florida Seminary and of the West Florida Semi- 
nary, at Tallahassee, in 1856. The former of these institutions 
was, however, removed to Gainesville in 1866. The State 
Constitution of 1868 contained provisions for establishing 
and maintaining a university (Art. VIII, Sec. 2), pursuant 
to which the Legislature passed the next year "An Act to 
Establish a Uniform System of Common Schools and a 
University." The salient features of this Act show high ideals 
and purposes and would be a credit to any state. Other at- 
tempts to establish a university were made in 1883 by the 
State Board of Education and in 1885 by the Legislature. 
Furthermore, the State Constitution, adopted later in the 
year 1885, expressly permitted special legislation with regard 
to a university. 

Meanwhile, in 1870, the Legislature had, in accordance 
with the terms of the "Land-Grant College" Act of Congress 
of 1862, passed "An Act to Establish the Florida Agricul- 
tural College." An Act supplementary to this was passed in 
1872, and the State received from the general government 
ninety thousand acres of land, the proceeds from which were 
to be used in support of the proposed college. A site for 
the college was selected in 1873 and again in 1875. No edu- 
cational work having been accomplished in the "temporary 


college edifice" at its second location, the trustees appointed 
a committee in 1878 to decide upon a more suitable situation. 
Not until 1883 was the third site selected — this time, Lake 
City. Here in the autumn of 1884 the work of instruction was 
finally begun. An attempt was made in 1886 by this insti- 
tution to have its name changed to the "University of Flor- 
ida," a title it finally secured by the Legislative Act of 1903. 
Before this, in 1887, the Florida Agricultural Experiment 
Station had, in accordance with the terms of the Hatch Act, 
been established as one of its departments and three years 
later the provisions of the Morrill Act provided a substantial 
increase in its annual income. 

During these years, in addition to the three already men- 
tioned, three other institutions of higher education, all de- 
pending upon the State for support, had come one by one 
into existence. These were the Normal School at DeFuniak 
Springs, the South Florida College at Bartow, and the Agri- 
cultural Institute in Osceola County. In 1905, however, in- 
asmuch as these six institutions had failed to make satis- 
factory differentiation among themselves and to separate their 
work sufficiently from that of the high schools of the State, 
and inasmuch as the cost of maintaining all seemed dispro- 
portionate to the results obtained, the Legislature passed the 
"Buckman Act," the practical effect of which was to merge 
the six into the "Florida Female College," at Tallahassee, 
and the "University of the State of Florida." Both these 
institutions began their scholastic work in September, 1905. 
In 1909 an Act of the Legislature changed the name of the 
one to the "Florida State College for Women," of the other 
to the "University of Florida." 

During the first session of the University a distinct Nor- 
mal School, which included two years of Sub-Freshman grade, 
was maintained. In addition to this, instruction was given 
in agriculture and in engineering, as well as in the usual col- 
legiate branches. Candidates for admission to the Freshman 
class must have finished the eleventh grade of a high school. 
The Agricultural Experiment Station was a separate division, 
altho members of its Staff gave instruction to the students 
and the President of the University acted as its Director. The 
next year the Staff of the Agricultural Experiment Station 
were required to devote their time exclusively to Station 


activities, and Mr. P. H. Rolfs was elected Director. The Nor- 
mal School was abolished and instruction in pedagogy was 
transferred to the University proper. Two years of Sub- 
Freshman work were, however, still offered. 

Upon the election in 1909 of Dr. A. A. Murphree to the 
presidency, steps were taken to reorganize the University. 
The present organization dates from 1910. The College of 
Law was added in 1909 and the departments offering instruc- 
tion mainly to normal students were organized into a college 
in 1912. In 1913 the present entrance requirements went 
into effect. The same year a Summer School was established 
at the University by Act of the Legislature and the Farmers' 
Institute Work of the University and the Cooperative Demon- 
stration Work for Florida of the United States Department 
of Agriculture were combined. On July 1, 1915, all the agri- 
cultural activities of the University were placed under the 
direction of the Dean of the College of Agriculture. 


On the 6th day of July, 1905, acting under powers con- 
fered by the Buckman Act, the State Board of Education and 
the Board of Control, in joint session, selected Gainesville as 
the location for the University. During the scholastic year 
of 1905-06, it was found necessary to carry on the work of 
the University at Lake City. Since the summer of 1906 the 
institution has occupied its present site. 

The advantages that Gainesville presents as the seat of 
the University are numerous. It is centrally located and easy 
of access. It has well-paved, lighted, and shaded streets, an 
exceptionally pure water supply, and a good sewerage sys- 
tem. The citizens are energetic, progressive, and hospitable. 
The moral atmosphere is wholesome and for years the sale 
of intoxicants has been prohibited by law. The leading re- 
ligious denominations have attractive places of worship. 


The annual income of the University, apart from Legisla- 
tive appropriations, is derived principally from the following 
Federal grants: (a) The "East Florida Seminary Fund," 
amounting to about two thousand dollars ($2,000) ; (b) the 
"Agricultural College Fund" bonds, yielding about seventy- 


seven hundred dollars ($7,700) ; (c) one-half of the "Morrill 
Fund," amounting to twelve thousand five hundred dollars 
($12,500) ; (d) one-half of the "Nelson fund," yielding twelve 
thousand five hundred dollars ($12,500). The total income 
thus derived amounts to thirty-four thousand seven hundred 
dollars ($34,700). 

For the support of the Agricultural Experiment Station 
the Federal government makes two annual grants: (a) the 
"Hatch Fund" and (b) the "Adams Fund." Each of these 
amounts to fifteen thousand dollars ($15,000).

The University occupies a tract of six hundred and four 
acres, situated in the western extremity of Gainesville. Ninety 
acres of this tract are devoted to campus, drill-grounds, and 
athletic fields; the remainder is used by the College of Agri- 

The University is one of the few institutions in the United 
States that made plans before laying the foundation of a single 
building for all future development of the campus, as far as 
this could be foreseen. Consequently the campus presents an 
harmonious appearance. The liberality of the State has per- 
mitted the erection of buildings as fast as they were needed. 
Twelve have already been constructed, all of which are lighted 
with electricity, supplied with city water, and furnished with 
modern improvements. These buildings are: 

The two Dormitories, Thomas Hall and Buckman Hall, 
brick and concrete structures, three stories in height, sixty feet 
in width and three hundred and two hundred and forty feet, 
respectively, in length. They are built in fireproof sections, 
each containing twelve suites of dormitory-rooms and on each 
floor of each section a shower-bath, lavatory, and toilet. 

The Mechanic Arts Shop, a one-story brick building, sixty 
feet long and thirty feet wide, with a wing thirty feet long 
and twenty feet wide. It provides for the shopwork in the 
Engineering, Mechanic Arts, and Manual Training Courses. 

Science Hall, a brick and concrete building of two stories 
and a finished basement, one hundred and thirty-five feet long 


and sixty-six feet wide. It contains the classrooms and labora- 
tories of the Departments of Botany and Horticulture, Chem- 
istry, Physics, and Biology and Geology. 

The Agricultural Experiment Station Building, a brick and 
concrete structure of three stories and a finished basement, one 
hundred and twenty-five feet long and sixty feet wide. It con- 
tains the offices and laboratories of the Station. 

Engineering Hall, a brick and terra-cotta structure, three 
stories high, one hundred and twenty-two feet long and sev- 
enty-three feet wide, with a one-story wing for boilers and 
steam-engine laboratory. It provides offices, classrooms, lab- 
oratories, and drafting-rooms for the Departments of Givil, 
of Electrical, and of Mechanical Engineering, and of Mechanic 

The Gymnasium, a temporary one-story wooden structure, 
sixty feet long and forty feet wide. It is provided with equip- 
ment for physical training, lockers, and showers. Adjacent 
is a swimming pool, thirty-six feet long, twenty-four feet wide, 
and from four and a half to seven feet deep. 

The Agricultural College Building, a brick and concrete 
structure, three stories high, one hundred and fifteen feet long 
and sixty-five feet wide. It provides for classrooms, labora- 
tories, and offices for the Departments of Agronomy, Animal 
Husbandry, and for Extension Work. One half of the second 
floor is used at present as a general assembly hall. 

The University Commons, a brick building of one story and 
basement, one hundred and fourteen feet long and forty-two 
feet wide, with a wing forty-nine feet long and twenty-seven 
feet wide. It provides a large dining-hall and kitchen. 

Language Hall, a brick and stone structure of three stories, 
one hundred and thirty-five feet long and sixty-six feet wide. 
It is the home of the College of Arts and Sciences and provides 
classrooms and offices for the Departments of Languages, His- 
tory and Economics, Mathematics, and Sociology and Political 
Science, together with the administrative offices of the Uni- 
versity. In the basement are the book stores and the offices 
and presses of the Alligator. 

George Peabody Hrll, erected at a cost of forty thousand 
dollars ($40,000), the gift of the Peabody Board of Trust. 
It is a brick building, ^hree stories high, one hundred and 
thirty-five feet long ard seventy-two feet wide. It provides 

u. /.— 2 


for the Departments of Education and Philosophy and for 
Teacher Training Work. The general library of the Univer- 
sity is at present in this building. 

The College of Law Building, a brick and stone structure 
of two stories, one hundred and twenty feet long and seventy 
feet wide. It contains an auditorium, model court-room, lec- 
ture-rooms and offices, library, reading and consultation 
rooms, cataloguing room, and quarters for the Marshall Debat- 
ing Society. 

Value. — The value of the property used for the work of 
the University is about $660,000. 


The general Library contains about 20,000 volumes. Ad- 
ditional books are purchased ^s fast as funds are available. 
An effort is being made to place on the shelves all books ex- 
tant relating to Florida history. 

The books are catalogued and shelved according to the 
Dewey system, making them readily available for reference. 
Students are encouraged to use the card catalogs, which are 
arranged alphabetically, both according to authors and to 
subjects, and by free access to the stacks to become familiar 
with the books themselves. The librarian or an assistant 
is always in attendance to explain the arrangement of books 
and to give aid in reference work. A taste for literature 
and information is being developed in many students who, 
before entering the University, have not had access to a good 

As a designated depository of Federal documents, the 
Library receives each year several hundred volumes of valu- 
able government publications. Files are kept of all Florida 
State publications and of the bulletins and reports of the 
Agricultural Experiment Stations thruout the Union. 

In the reading room are one hundred and thirty of the best 
general and technical periodicals. The back numbers of these 
are bound and kept on file and the early volumes purchased 
whenever they can be obtained and funds permit. Here also 
are received the leading newspapers of the State. County pa- 
pers are added to the list at the request of students. 

The technical departments possess special libraries, housed 


in their respective buildings, but accessible to all members of 
the University. 


The University Museum occupies rooms in Science Hall. 
Its functions are to embody the material of a State museum ; 
to collect and preserve a complete representation of the his- 
tory of the State of Florida, both natural and civil : the natural 
history to be represented by collections of the minerals, the 
flora, and the fauna; the civil by material illustrating the 
advancement of civilization in the State, together with the 
economic natural resources. 

The collections include more than tv^^o hundred and fifty 
mounted birds, six hundred bird skins, about one hundred bird 
nests, and nearly eight hundred sets of bird eggs, nearly five 
hundred snakes and lizards, about seventeen thousand shells, 
ten thousand prehistoric Indian relics, several thousand fos- 
sils, about one hundred casts of rare fossils, about one hundred 
minerals, more than two thousand insects, and a number of 
historic relics. 

The Museum is open to students and the public every week- 
day afternoon from one-thirty to five, during which hours the 
curator will be pleased to meet and assist visitors. 


The following laboratories are maintained by the Univer- 

The Agricultural Laboratories and the other agricultural 
equipment will be found fully described under the General 
Statement of the College of Agriculture. 

The Botanical Laboratory contains enough dissecting mi- 
croscopes and instruments and Bausch and Lomb compound 
microscopes, magnifying from 80 to 465 diameters, for the 
individual use of the students ; a Zeiss binocular microscope ; a 
large compound microscope of very high power; two demon- 
stration microscopes; and a Mcintosh stereopticon, with pro- 
jection microscope attachment. For work in histology there 
are hand microtomes, section knives, a sliding microtome, 
Miller's paraffin bath, and a supply of reagents, stains, and 
mounts ; for studies in physiology there are germination boxes, 
nutrient jars, an osmometer, a clinostat, etc. An herbarium 


has been started, to which students each year add specimens, 
which they collect, identify, and mount, A case of reference 
books and periodicals is in the laboratory within easy reach. 

The Chemical Laboratory is equipped with the apparatus 
and material necessary for instruction in general inorganic 
and organic, analytical and industrial chemistry, as well as 
for advanced work. It contains two delicate balances, a latest 
model polariscope, microscope and spectroscope, ample plat- 
inum ware (crucible dishes, electrodes, wire, and foil) and 
many special pieces of apparatus for illustrating, upon the lec- 
ture table, chemical principles. The equipment is modem in 
every respect and can be used to the best advantage. The 
stock of chemicals is abundant and complete. 

The Dynamo Laboratory, providing for practical instruc- 
tion on electrical machinery, occupies a portion of Engineering 
Hall. The principal machines are a 10-KW Type ACS General 
Electric synchronous converter, a 25-KW General Electric 
Type IB direct current generator, a 1-HP Westinghouse Type 
R motor, a 1-KW synchronous motor, and two 2-KW Westing- 
house Type S dynamos, designed to be used either as genera- 
tors or as motors. The switchboard panel for each machine is 
placed near it, but is connected to terminals on a main distri- 
bution board for the whole laboratory. Power is supplied by 
a 10-HP single phase Wagner induction motor, connected with 
the city alternating current supply and driving the main shaft 
of the laboratory. The various machines are driven from this 
shaft, and can be thrown in or out by friction clutches. 

The laboratory is also supplied with transformers, several 
types of arc lamps, and numerous measuring instruments of 
different ranges, chiefly of Weston make. 

The Geological Laboratory contains the U. S. Geological 
Survey Educational Series of rocks. Students of historical 
geology are provided with a collection of fossils illustrating 
the distribution and development of organisms. For the study 
of mineralogy there is a blowpipe collection of one hundred 
selected mineral species, an accessory blowpipe collection of 
miscellaneous minerals, a collection of fifty natural crystals, 
and a reference collection of choice mineral specimens. 

The Physical Laboratory is well equipt with apparatus 
and meets the needs of such undergraduate work in physics as 
is usually carried on in the best American colleges. 


The western half of the ground floor of Science Hall is de- 
voted to the Department of Physics. Its quarters include a 
lecture-room, 25 feet by 23 feet, with amphitheatered seats, 
an office and library room ; a main laboratory room, 28 by 25 
feet; an electrical laboratory, 30 by 14 feet; a battery room; 
an optical room, 23 by 10 feet, arranged so as to be effectively 
darkened ; a work-shop, a store-room ; and a private laboratory 
room, for research work. Water, gas, and electricity from 
various circuits are led to all of the rooms. The laboratory 
is provided with several brick piers, on foundations independ- 
ent of the rest of the building, for the accommodation of in- 
struments requiring special stability. 

The Psychological Laboratory occupies six rooms on the 
first floor of Peabody Hall and is well equipt for class dem- 
onstrations, and for carrying on experimental and research 
work. As demand arises new equipment will be added. In 
addition to the apparatus for the regular experimental work, 
the laboratory is equipt for carrying on mental and physical 
tests in connection with the work in educational psychology 
offered by the Teachers College. 

The Zoological and Bacteriological Laboratories are well 
equipt for the work of instruction. In addition to the neces- 
sary glassware and reagents, there are a number of high-grade 
microscopes ; dissecting microscopes ; two microtomes, one for 
celloidin, the other for paraffin sectioning ; paraffin bath ; ster- 
ilizers, both wet and dry; warm and cool incubators; dark- 
ground illuminator ; balances ; centrifuge ; breeding cages ; an- 
atomical preparations and models; a number of the Leukart- 
Chun zoological wall charts ; one Leitz large compound micro- 
scope with mechanical stage and a full set of apochromatic ob- 
jectives; and one Bausch and Lomb projecting lantern with 
accessories. The departmental library contains a number of 
the current periodicals, as well as the more important text- 
books and reference works. 


The Mechanical Engineering Laboratory has a large and a 
small vertical steam engine, a pressure blower, a fan blower, 
a boiler feed pump, indicators, steam gauge testers, and ther- 
mometer testers. The large water tube boilers installed for 
the heating plant are also available for testing purposes. 


The Testing Laboratory for testing the strength of mate- 
rials and other mechanical properties of materials has a 50,000 
pound Riehle testing-machine for tests of the tensile, compres- 
sive, and transverse strength of materials, and a cement test- 
ing-machine with the necessary accessories. These machines 
are useful among other things for testing materials used in 
road construction. 

The Computing -Room is furnished with all necessary- 
tables and a library of about two hundred reference books for 
use in connection with the work of the mechanical laboratories 
and drafting-room. 

The Drafting-Room is equipt with substantial oak desks 
and possesses the necessary minor equipment to accommodate 
classes of twenty-four students. It has been carefully de- 
signed for its purposes and is a model of its kind. 

Surveying Instruments. — These consist of three survey- 
er's compasses; three wye and two dumpy levels, and one 
precision level; two plain and four stadia transits, of which 
three are equipt with attachments for solar and star obser- 
vations; one complete plane-table; and the necessary rods, 
chains, tapes, and minor apparatus.

hand forge, six anvils, and a large supply of tools. 


The institution has provided a hard-surfaced athletic field, 
including football gridiron, baseball diamond, with grand- 
stand and enclosed field, and ample tennis-court facilities. A 
basket-ball court and concrete swimming-pool are also located 
on the campus. 




Board of Control. — The general government of the Uni- 
versity is vested by law in a Board of Control consisting of 
five members from various parts of the State, appointed, each 
for a term of four years, by the Governor of Florida. 

The Board of Control appoints the President and, upon his 
nomination, elects members of the Faculties, directs the gen- 
eral policies of the University, and supervises the expenditure 
of its funds. The Board also prescribes the requirements for 
admission, with the advice of the President and Faculties, and 
upon their recommendation confers degrees. 

President. — The direct administration of all affairs of the 
University is in the hands of the President. 

Deans. — As executive head each college of the Univer- 
sity (for Organization see page 42) has a Dean, appointed 
from the Faculty of that college. These officers are responsi- 
ble to the President. 

University Council. — The President and Vice-President 
of the University and the Deans of the several colleges form 
a council of administration, with the following functions: To 
lay out new lines of work, inaugurate new enterprises in 
general, and to prepare the annual budget; and to act as the 
judicial body of the General Faculty on cases of general dis- 
cipline not under the authority of the colleges, on new courses 
of study and changes in existing courses, bringing these mat- 
ters before the Board of Control, and on questions of college 
action referred to it by any member of the General Faculty. 

Faculties. — The General Faculty of the University in- 
cludes all persons engaged in the work of instruction in the 
University, except laboratory assistants and undergraduate 
assistants to the professors. Under the leadership of the 
President, it forms the governing body in all general matters 
of instruction and discipline. 

The Faculty of a college consists of those members of the 
General Faculty who give instruction in it. Under the lead- 
ership of its Dean, it forms the governing body in matters 
of instruction and discipline in its college. 



Supervision. — An Officer in Charge, occupying quarters 
in one of the dormitories, has immediate supervision of the 
general life of the student-body. 

Offenses Against Good Conduct. — Any offense against 
good conduct, in the ordinary meaning of the word, renders 
a student liable to discipline, whether or not a formal rule 
against the offense has been published. 

The following offenses will be treated with special sever- 
ity: Disrespect to an officer of the University; wanton de- 
struction of property; gambling; drunkenness; having intoxi- 
cating liquors or revolvers in possession on the University 

The use of intoxicating liquors at student functions of any 
kind, by student groups, or by individual students, either on 
or off the campus, is strictly forbidden. 

Hazing. — No form of hazing will be tolerated in the Uni- 
versity and no student will be assigned to a room in a dormi- 
tory until he has been matriculated and has signed the fol- 
lowing pledge: 

"/ hereby promise upon my word of honor, without any 
mental reservation whatsoever, to refrain from all forms of 
hazing while I am connected with the University of Florida." 

Absences. — A student who accumulates ten unexcused ab- 
sences from classes, or three unexcused absences from drill, 
will be given a severe reprimand and parent or guardian will 
be notified. Two additional unexcused absences will cause 
the student to be dismissed from the University. Ten unex- 
cused absences from Chapel will subject all students, except 
Seniors and those in the College of Law to the same penalty. 

Attendance Upon Duties. — A student who, without good 
cause, persistently absents himself from his University duties, 
is, after due warning, dishonorably dismissed for the re- 
mainder of the academic year. A student who, by reason of ill 
health or outside demands upon his time, finds it impossible to 
give regular attention to his University duties, is requested to 
withdraw; but such request does not in any way reflect upon 
his good standing. 

Delinquencies in University duties are reported to the 
Registrar, who brings them to the attention of the students 


concerned and requires a prompt explanation to be made. 
Careful records of all delinquencies are kept. 


Quantity of Work. — A minimum and a maximum num- 
ber of recitation hours (or equivalent time in laboratory 
courses) per week are prescribed in each college and no 
student may take fewer than the minimum or more than the 
maximum, except by special permission of the Faculty of his 
college. Not counting Military Science, these numbers are: 
In the College of Arts and Sciences and in the College of Law, 
15 and 18; in the College of Agriculture, 16 and 23; in the 
College of Engineering, 16 and 23; and in the Teachers Col- 
lege, 15 and 19. . - .- . 

Two hours of laboratory ,w£)rJi*^r&co.osider^d equivalent 
to one hour of recitat-on. - >'' »' ., , 

Conflicts. — Studies must be so chosen as not- to , conflict, 
as shown on the. .printed schedule^ f/)>* the year. 

AssiGNMENr-TO CLASSES. — Every- student must appear- bye- 
fore the Dean of his college at the beginning of each academic 
year for assignment to classes. No instructor has, except as 
authorized by the Dean of his college, authority to enroll a 
student in any course. 

Choice of Studies. — The choice as to which one of the 
various curricula is to be pursued rests with the individual 
student, subject to considerations of proper preparation; but 
the group of studies selected must be that belonging to one of 
the regular years in the chosen curriculum exactly as an- 
nounced in the catalog, unless special reasons exist for de- 
viating from this arrangement. A student will, however, be 
held to the requirements of the catalog under which he en- 

Conditions. — A student who is prepared to take up most 
of the studies of a certain year in a regular curriculum, but 
who is deficient in some studies, will be permitted to proceed 
with the work of that year subject to the condition that he 
make up the studies in which the deficiency occurs. Provi- 
sion for all of the lower studies must be made before any of 
the higher may be taken ; in the event of conflicts in the sched- 
ule or of excessive quantity of work, higher studies must give 
way to lower. 


Extra Studies. — By special permission from the Dean of 
his college, a student may take extra studies in addition to 
those prescribed, provided this can be done without conflict- 
ing with a regular study or exceeding the maximum number 
of hours of study. Such permission is not, as a rule, granted 
to any conditioned student; and it may be withdrawn from 
any student in the event of his failure in any of the regular 

Special Students. — Students desiring to take special 
courses will be allowed to take those classes for which they 
may be prepared. Such students are subject to all the laws 
and regulations of the University. Special courses do not 
lead to a degree. 

The University permits special xjourses to be taken solely 
in order to. provide for the occasion^ exceptional requirements 
of individual students. Abuse of this ^ri-zilege, for the sake 
of av.oijd'ng regular, studies thj^t may be dist^tstef ul, cannot be 
toleiated. Accordili&l-y, no n:iinor is permitted to enter as a 
special student except upon written request of his parent or 
guardian. Minor special students must, except as provided 
for in the College of Agriculture, offer fourteen units for 

Adult Specials. — Persons 21 years of age or over who can- 
not offer all the entrance requirements, but give evidence of 
serious purpose and of ability to profit by the courses they 
may take, may, under exceptional circumstances, be admitted 
as "Adult Specials." Such students appear before the Com- 
mittee on Admission for enrollment. 

When Special Students make up their deficiencies they 
may become regular students and candidates for a degree. 

Classification of Irregular Students, — A student is 
deemed to belong to that class in which the majority of his 
hours of work lies. But a special student is not considered as 
belonging to any of the regular classes. 

Changes in Studies. — After a student is registered, he 
is not permitted to discontinue any class or to begin any 
additional one, without written permission from the Dean of 
his college, which must be shown to the instructor involved. 
If the student has been registered for two weeks, he will not 
be permitted to make any such change, except at the be- 


ginning of the second semester, without the payment of a 
fee of two dollars ($2.00) . 

Grades and Reports. — Each instructor keeps a record of 
the quality of work done in his classes and monthly assigns 
each student a grade, on the scale of 100. This grade is 
reported to the Registrar for permanent record and for entry 
upon a monthly report to the student's parent or guardian. 

If the monthly grades of a student are unsatisfactory, he 
may be required to drop some of his studies and substitute 
those of a lower class, or he may be required to withdraw from 
the University. 

Examinations. — Examinations on the ground covered 
are held at the end of each semester. 

Failure in Studies. — A final grade for each semester's 
work is assigned, based upon the examination and the monthly 
grades. If this grade falls below 75, the student is considered 
to have failed and may proceed only subject to a condition in 
the study in which failure has occurred. 

Re-examinations. — A student who has failed in the work 
of a semester is allowed, in case his grade does not fall below 
60, to make up the condition by re-examination, on the first 
Saturday of March or the first Saturday of October. Only 
one re-examination in any subject is allowed; in case of failure 
to pass this, the student must repeat the semester's work in 
that subject. 

Degrees. — The special requirements for the various de- 
grees offered by the University will be found under the Gen- 
eral Statement of the Graduate School and of each of the five 
colleges. The following regulations apply to all colleges: 

While pursuing studies leading to a degree a student must 
be registered in the college offering that degree. 

Two degrees of the same rank, as, e.g., B.S.C.E. and 
B.S.E.E., will not be conferred upon the same individual, un- 
less the second degree to be conferred represents at least fif- 
teen hours of additional work. 


Absences on Account of Athletics, etc. — The members 
of regular athletic teams, of musical and of other student 
organizations, together with necessary substitutes and man- 
agers, are permitted to be absent from their University duties 


for such time, not to exceed nine days per semester, as may 
be necessary to take part in games, concerts, etc., away from 
Gainesville. All class-work missed on account of such trips 
must be made up, as promptly as possible, at such hours as 
may be arranged by the various professors. 

Schedules. — Schedules of games, concerts, etc., must be 
arranged so as to interfere as little as possible with Uni- 
versity duties. Schedules of games must receive the approval 
of the Committee on Athletics; schedules of concerts, of dra- 
matic entertainments, etc., the approval of the Committee on 
Student Organizations. 

All regular games will be played under the rules of the 
Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association. 

Eligibility to Athletic Teams, Musical Clubs, etc. — 
Any team or club representing the University must be com- 
posed exclusively of students in good standing, altho the Com- 
mittee on Student Organizations has the power to waive this 
regulation in the case of dramatic and musical organizations. 
Negligence of duties, or failure in studies, excludes a student 
from membership in all such organizations. 

No student is permitted to play on any regular athletic 
team, who, in the opinion of the University physician, is not in 
proper physical condition. No minor student is permitted to 
play, if his parent or guardian objects. A list of players and 
substitutes must be submitted to the Committee on Athletics 
before each game and must receive its approval. 

Finances. — Student organizations engaging in financial 
operations must publish at least once a year in the Alligator 
a statement of their receipts and expenditures. 


Phi Kappa Phi. — A chapter of the Society of Phi Kappa 
Phi was established at the University during the spring of 
1912. To be eligible for membership a student must have 
been in attendance at the University for at least three sem- 
esters, have been guilty of no serious breaches of discipline, 
have had at least three years of collegiate training, be within 
one year of finishing a course leading to a degree, and stand 
among the first fourth of the Senior class of the University. 
The numerical grade which must be attained is based on all 


college work, whether done here or elsewhere for which the 
student receives credit towards a degree. 

Medals. — Medals are offered (1) to the best declaimer in 
the Freshman and Sophomore classes; (2) for the best orig- 
inal oration by a member of the Junior class of any college; 
(3) for the best original oration by a member of the Senior 
class of any college. These contests are settled in public com- 
petition at Commencement. The speakers are limited to four 
from each class and are selected by the Faculty. 


University Charges. — Tuition. — A tuition fee of forty 
dollars ($40.00) per year is charged every student regis- 
tered in the College of Law. In the other colleges a student 
whose legal residence is in Florida is subject to no charge 
for tuition ; a student who is not a legal resident of the State 
is required to pay a tuition fee of twenty dollars ($20.00) 
per year. 

Registration and Contingent Fee. — This fee of ten dol- 
lars ($10.00) per year is charged all students, except one 
scholarship student from each county in Florida and all gradu- 
ate' students pursuing work leading to a higher degree than 
that of Bachelor. These two classes of students are charged 
five dollars ($5.00). 

The scholarships referred to are to be obtained from 
County Superintendents of Public Instruction and must be 
filed with the auditor on the day of registration. 

An additional fee of two dollars ($2.00) is required of 
students who enter after the day scheduled for registration. 

Damage Deposit. — In order to secure the University 
against damage, the sum of five dollars ($5.00) must be de- 
posited at registration. Damage known to have been done 
by any student will be charged to his individual account ; other 
damages will be prorated among the students. 

At the end of the scholastic year this deposit, less the 
amount deducted, will be returned to the student, provided 
that no book nor other part of the University equipment still 
remains in his possession. Orders for the disbursement of 
sums remaining to the credit of individual students must be 
presented in person, and will not be recognized by the audi- 
tor until after the close of the second semester. 


Infirmary Fee. — A student whose parent or guardian does 
not reside in Gainesville, is charged an infirmary fee of three 
dollars ($3.00), the proceeds of which go towards defraying 
the salary of a resident nurse and for medicines. This secures 
for the student, in case of illness, the privilege of a bed in 
the infirmary (which occupies Section A of Thomas Hall) and 
the services of the nurse. 

Board and Lodging. — Board, lodging, and janitor service 
will be furnished by the University at a cost of seventy dol- 
lars ($70.00) for the first semester, not including the Christ- 
mas vacation, and seventy-five dollars ($75.00) for the sec- 
ond semester.* In order to get advantage of this rate, pay- 
ment must be made at the beginning of each semester. In 
very exceptional cases arrangements may be made to pay in 
three equal instalments. No refund will be made for less than 
a month's absence. Board and lodging when not engaged by 
the semester will be furnished at twenty dollars ($20.00) per 

Under Board and Lodging are included meals in the com- 
mons and room (with heat, light, janitor service, and access 
to a bathroom), furnished as stated below. The doors of the 
rooms are provided with Yale locks. A deposit of 50 cents is 
required for each key, which will be returned when the key 
is surrendered. Janitor service includes the care of rooms by 
maids, under the supervision of a competent housekeeper. 

Lodging without Board. — Students sharing a room in the 
dormitories, but not taking meals in the commons, will be 
charged $5.00 each per month for lodging. For sole use of 
a room the charge will be $10.00 per month. 

Board without Lodging. — Board without lodging will be 
furnished at the rate of $16.00 per calendar month, payable 
in advance. No part of this sum will be refunded. 

Furniture. — All rooms are partly furnished and adjoin 
bathrooms equipt with marble basin and shower with both 
hot and cold water. The furniture consists of two iron bed- 
steads and mattresses, chiffonier or bureau, table, wash- 
stand, and chairs. The students are required to provide pil- 
lows, bedding, half -curtains, and mosquito-bar. 

*0n account of the increase in prices of food and labor, it has been found 
necessary to add approximately ten per cent, to the previous charge 
for board and lodging. 


Uniform. — Students in the military department are re- 
quired to provide themselves with the prescribed uniform, 
which is furnished under contract. The suit is of Charlottes- 
ville cadet grey, of good quality, and inexpensive. A cap of 
dark-blue cloth and two pairs of white duck trousers are also 
required. This uniform is neat and serviceable and may be 
worn at all times. The total cost is about $25.00. 

Books. — The cost of books depends largely upon the course 
taken, but is, in no case, a large item of expense, tho in the 
higher classes the student is encouraged to acquire a few 
works of permanent value. 

Summary. — The following statement summarizes the min- 
imum expenses of a Florida student registered in any college 
save in that of Law : 

Tuition $000.00 

Registration and Contingent Fee 10.00 

Damage Deposit 5.00 

Infirmary Fee 3.00 

Board and Lodging 145.00 

Uniform (about) 25.00 

Books (about) - 10.00 

Incidentals (laundry, athletic, literary society, 

etc., dues), about 20.00 


Students who are exempt from buying uniforms will de- 
duct $17.00 from the above table ; students from other States 
will add a tuition fee of $20.00. 

Remittances. — All remittances should he made to the 
Auditor, University of Florida, Gainesville, Fla. 

Opportunities for Earning Expenses. — It is often pos- 
sible for a student to earn a part of his expenses by work- 
ing during hours not required for his University duties. 

A few students are employed as waiters in the commons, 
as janitors, and in some other capacities. Such employ- 
ment is not, as a rule, given to a student unless he is other- 
wise financially unable to attend the University, nor is it given 
to one who fails in any study. 

While the employment of students is designed to assist 
those in need of funds, the payment for their services is in 
no sense a charity. The rate of remuneration is no higher 
and the standard of service demanded is no lower than 
would be the case if the work were done by others than 
students. If a student employee fails to give satisfaction, he 


is promptly discharged. Otherwise he is continued in his 
position as long as he cares to hold it, provided it is not 
found to interfere with reasonable success in his studies and 
provided he does riot commit any breach of good conduct. 

Great credit is due those willing to make the necessary 
sacrifices, nevertheless students are advised not to undertake 
to earn money while pursuing their studies, unless such 
action is unavoidable. Proper attention to studies makes 
sufficient demand upon the time and energy of a student, 
without the burden of outside duties ; such time as the studies 
leave free can be spent more profitably in recreation. 


Fellowships. — In order to encourage young teachers to 
prepare themselves further for their work by taking graduate 
courses in Education, three Teaching Fellowships, each pay- 
ing $200.00 annually, have been established. 

Application for a fellowship must be made in writing to 
the Dean of the Teachers College or to the President of the 
University. It must show that the applicant is a college 
graduate and has ability to profit by the work offered, and 
must be accompanied by testimonials as to his character. 

A Fellow must devote himself to studies leading to the 
Master's degree in Education. He will be expected to teach 
four or five hours per week in the Practice High School, un- 
der the direction and supervision of the Teachers College, 
for which he will receive two hours' credit. He may be called 
upon for minor services, such as conducting examinations and 
teaching review classes, but not for anything that would inter- 
fere with his graduate work. 

Scholarships. — Thru the generosity of friends, the 
University is able to offer four scholarships. Application for 
a scholarship should be made to the President of the Univer- 
sity and should be accompanied by a record of the student's 
work, statement of his need, and testimonials as to his char- 
acter. To secure a scholarship : 

(a) The student must actually need this financial help to 
enable him to attend the University. 

(b) He must be of good character and habits and suffi- 
ciently far advanced to enter not lower than the Freshman 


Three of $132.00 each per year: 

1. Children of the Confederacy Scholarship. — Established 
and maintained by the Florida Branch of the Children of the 
Confederacy. For the grandson of a Confederate soldier. 

2. United Daughters of the Confederacy Scholarship. — 
Established and maintained by the U. D. C. of the State at 
large. For the grandson of a Confederate soldier. 

3. Lykes Scholarship. — Established and maintained by

One of $200 per year : 

4. Knight and Wall Scholarship. — Established and main- 
tained by the Knight and Wall Company, hardware dealers, 
of Tampa. 

For particulars relating to this scholarship address the 
Superintendent of Public Instruction, Hillsboro County, 
Tampa, Fla. 

Loan Fund. — William Wilson Finley Foundation. — As a 
memorial to the late President Finley and in recognition of 
his interest in agricultural education, the Southern Railway 
Company has donated to the University the sum of one thou- 
sand dollars ($1,000), to be used as a loan fund. Students 
benefiting by this fund must enter the College of Agriculture. 

For particulars address the Dean of the College of Agri- 


At the close of the Commencement exercises in 1906 the 
graduates of the year organized an Alumni Association. All 
graduates of the University and the graduates of the former 
institutions who have had their diplomas confirmed by the 
University are eligible for membership. 

Further information concerning the Association may be 
had by addressing any one of the officers: President, B. R. 
Colson, Gainesville, Fla.; Vice-President, C. P. Lovell, Jack- 
sonville, Fla.; Secretary and Treasurer, S. Harn, Gainesville, 


Y. M. C. A.— The Y. M. C. A. of the University seeks to 
create a Christian atmosphere, to train men for aggressive 
Christian service, and to cooperate in Christian work with all 
the local churches. 

u. /.— 3 


Two meetings are held each week : on Wednesday night a 
prayer meeting conducted by students; on Sunday afternoon 
a more general meeting at which some member of the Faculty, 
minister of the city, or distinguished Christian worker makes 
an address. Classes for Bible and Mission study are also con- 
ducted under the auspices of the Association. 

Students, on entering the University, should by all means 
become identified with the Y. M. C. A. and parents should 
counsel and encourage them to do so. A note of introduction 
to the president of the organization will cause special atten- 
tion to be given a new student. 

Literary and Scientific Societies. — See General State- 
ment of each of the five colleges of the University. 

Orchestra. — The orchestra plays for Chapel exercises 
and furnishes special music on Fridays. It also accompanies 
the University Minstrels on its annual tour. 

Glee and Mandolin Clubs. — The Glee Club develops 
ability in part-singing and gives much pleasure by adding 
variety to the Friday morning exercises. The Mandolin Club, 
composed of mandolins, guitars, and similar instruments, 
while complete in itself, joins the Glee Club in its annual tour. 

Military Band. — The Military Band adds much to the 
effectiveness of parades. It makes several excursions during 
the year to neighboring towns, and has an annual trip of 
nearly a week with the University Minstrels. 

Publications — Beginning with the session of 1909-10 
each Senior class has published an illustrated annual, known 
as the "Seminole." 

The "Florida Alligator" is a weekly newspaper owned 
and controlled by the student-body. Its editorial articles dis- 
cuss University problems from the viewpoint of the under- 
graduates. It seeks the support of the alumni, who find in it 
the best means of keeping in touch with the University. 


Terms. — A candidate for admission must present, along 
with his scholastic record, a certificate of good moral char- 
acter, and, if he be from another college or university, the 
certificate must show that he was honorably discharged. 

No candidate under 16 (18 in the College of Law) years 
of age will be admitted. 


Methods. — There are two methods of gaining admission: 

(1) Bij Certificate. — The University will accept certifi- 
cates from the approved Senior high schools of Florida ; from 
accredited academies and preparatory schools of the State; 
and from any secondary school of another state which is 
accredited by its state university. 

The certificate must be officially signed by the principal of 
the school attended. It must state in detail the work of prep- 
aration and, in the case of Florida high schools, that the course 
thru the twelfth grade has been satisfactorily completed. 

Blank certificates, conveniently arranged for the desired 
data, will be sent to all high-school principals and, upon ap- 
plication, to prospective students. 

(2) Bij Examination. — Candidates not admitted by cer- 
tificate will be required to stand written examinations upon 
the entrance subjects. For dates of these examinations, see 
University Calendar, page 3. 

Requirements. — "Entrance Units." — The requirements 
for admission are measured in "Entrance Units," based upon 
the curriculum of the high schools of Florida. A unit repre- 
sents a course of study pursued thruout the school year with 
five recitation periods (two laboratory periods being counted 
as one recitation period) of at least forty-five minutes each 
per week, four courses being taken during each of the four 
years. Thus the curriculum of the standard Senior high 
school of F'lorida is equivalent to sixteen units. 

Number of Units. — Admission to the Freshman class will 
be granted to candidates who present credentials showing that 
they have been graduated from a standard Senior high school 
with a four-year curriculum based upon an eight-year gram- 
mar-school course, or who present evidence of having com- 
pleted courses amounting to sixteen units of preparatory work. 

In no case will credit for more than sixteen units be given 
for work done at a high school. 

These requirements are equal to fifteen "Carnegie Foun- 
dation" or "National Educational Association" units. 

Distribution of Units — Of the units required for admission, 
ten (eight in the College of Law) are specified and six (eight 
in the College of Law) are elective. Eight of the specified 
units are required in common by all the colleges of the Uni- 
versity, while the remaining two vary.

Elective Units. — These are to be chosen from the list of 
electives given below and from other subjects regularly- 
taught in a standard high school. Not more than four of 
these units will be accepted in vocational subjects — agricul- 
ture, mechanic arts, stenography, typewriting, etc.

Deficiencies. — A deficiency of two units will be allowed a 
candidate, but must be removed by the end of the first year 
after admission. 

Students who have registered for a University study will 
not be allowed to make up an entrance condition by examina-

tion in this subject, unless the examination be taken at the 
time of re-examinations in October of the same school-year. 
The University credit may, however, be used as a substitute 
for entrance credit. 


English. — Four units. — The required work in English is 
designed to cover three years. It is urged that the exercises in 
Composition and the use of the Classics be continued thruout 
this time. No candidate will be accepted whose work is no- 
tably defective in spelling, punctuation, idiom, or division into 

(1) Grammar. — A thoro knowledge of English Gram- 
mar, both in its technical aspects and in its bearings upon 
speech and writing.

to answer questions involving the essentials of grammar and 
the leading facts in the periods of English history to which 
the prescribed texts belong. 

II. Reading. — A number of books will be assigned for 
reading (see list subjoined) . The candidate will be required 
to write a paragraph or two on each of several topics to be 
chosen from a considerable number — perhaps ten or fifteen — 
set before him in the examination paper. This is designed to 
test the candidate's power of clear and accurate expression 
and will call for only a general knowledge of the substance of 
the books. The candidate must also be prepared to answer 
simple questions on the lives of the authors.

Organization. — This School is under the direction of the 
Committee on Graduate Studies, which consists of Professors 
Anderson, Farr, Rolfs, Benton, Trusler, and Cox. 

Graduate students should register with the Chairman of 
this Committee. 

Degrees Offered. — The University is not in a position at 
present to lay any great stress upon graduate work. Its 
courses are mainly of college grade and will doubtless remain 
so for many years to come. For the benefit, however, of those 
who wish to carry their studies further, courses are offered 
leading to the degrees of Master of Arts, Master of Arts in 
Education, Master of Science, Master of Science in Agricul- 
ture, and Master of Science in Education. 

Prerequisite Degrees. — Candidates for the Master's de- 
gree must possess the Bachelor's degree of this institution or 
of one of like standing. 

Applications. — Candidates for the Master's degree must 
present to the Chairman of the Committee on Graduate Studies 
a written application for the degree not later than the first of 
November of the scholastic year in which the degree is de- 
sired. This application must name the major or minor sub- 
jects offered for the degree and must contain the signed ap- 
proval of the heads of the departments concerned. 

When a candidate offers as a part of his work any course 
not sufficiently described in the catalog, he must include in his 
application an outline or description of that course. 

Time Required. — The student must spend at least one en- 
tire academic year in residence at the University as a graduate 
student, devoting his full time to the pursuit of his studies. 

Work Required. — The work is twelve hours per week. Six 
hours of this work must be in one subject (the major) and of a 
higher grade than any course offered for undergraduate stu- 
dents in that subject. The other six hours (the minor or mi- 
nors) are to be determined and distributed by the professor 
in charge of the department in which the major subject is se- 
lected. No course designed primarily for students of a lower 
grade than the Junior class will be acceptable as a minor. 


While the major course is six hours, these hours are not the 
same as in undergraduate work, for in general the major work 
will require at least two-thirds of the student's time. 

To obtain credit for a minor the student must attain a 
grade of not less than eighty-five per cent. 

Dissertation. — It is customary to require a dissertation 
showing original research and independent thinking on some 
subject accepted by the professor under whom the major work 
is taken, but this requirement may be waived at the option of 
the professor, subject to the approval of the Committee on 
Graduate Studies. If the requirement be not waived, the dis- 
sertation must be in the hands of the committee not later than 
two weeks before Commencement Day.

Aim and Scope. — The tendency of universities at the pres- 
ent time seems to be to reach out their arms farther and far- 
ther into the domain of knowledge and to become more and 
more places where the student may expect to be able to acquire 
any form of useful knowledge in which he may be interested. 
In the center, however, there is still found the College of Arts 
and Sciences, the pulsating heart, as it were, sending its vivi- 
fying streams to the outermost tips of the institution. 

The aim of the college is to prepare for life, it is true, but 
not so directly and immediately as do the professional schools. 
It is a longer, but a better road, for those who are able to travel 
it, to distinction and ultimate success in almost any calling. 
Especially in the case of the learned professions, it is becom- 
ing clearer that a man should first get a liberal education, if 
possible, before entering upon his professional studies. 

The purpose and aim of the College of Arts and Sciences is 
to impart culture and refinement, to train the mind and 
strengthen the intellect, to build up ideals and establish the 
character, to enlarge the vision, to ennoble the thoughts, to in- 
crease the appreciation of the beautiful and the true, to add 
charm to life and piquancy to companionship, to make the man 
a decent fellow, a useful citizen, an influential member of so- 
ciety in whatever community he may be thrown, in whatever 
field his life-course may be run. 

But if the student wishes to examine the practical side ex- 
clusively, he will find that there is also something practical in 
all these courses. For instance, they are all valuable for him 
who wishes to learn to teach those subjects. Moreover, the 
use of electives gives the student an opportunity to specialize 



in some branch according to his inclination and in furtherance 
of his plans. 

Admission. — For full description of requirements for ad- 
mission and of unit courses, see pages 34 to 41, inclusive. 

Literary Societies. — The Literary Societies are valuable 
adjuncts to the educational work of the college. They are con- 
ducted entirely by the students and maintain a high level of 
endeavor. The members obtain much practical experience in 
the conduct of public assemblies. They assimilate knowledge 
of parliamentary law, acquire ease and grace of delivery, learn 
to argue with coolness of thought and courtesy of manner, and 
are trained in thinking and in presenting their thoughts clearly 
and effectively while facing an audience. All students are 
earnestly advised to connect themselves with one of these so- 
cieties and to take a constant and active part in its work. 

Degrees. — The College of Arts and Sciences offers courses 
leading to the degrees of Bachelor of Arts (A.B.) and Bach- 
elor of Science (B.S.). 

Subjects of Study. — The subjects of study leading to- 
wards the degrees offered by the College of Arts and Sciences 
are divided into the following four groups : 

7. II. III. IV. 

I and II. German, Economics, Astronomy, 


Descriptive Geom- 
Military Science 

III and IV, 

Requirements for Degrees. — For each of the degrees of- 
fered, A.B. and B.S., a total of sixty-two hours must be taken, 
of which two must be in Group I. 

For the A.B. degree fifteen hours must be taken in Groups 
II and III and twelve hours from Group IV ; three hours may 
be chosen from any group; the remaining fifteen hours (in- 








English Litera- 

Rhetoric and 


English Lan- 





Political Science, 




eluding the "major") must be chosen from Groups II, III and 
(pure) Mathematics, altho twelve of these fifteen hours may 
be taken from the first year of the course in the College of Law. 

For the degree of B.S. twelve hours must be taken from 
each of Groups II and III, twenty-four (including the "ma- 
jor") from Group IV, leaving twelve hours to be chosen from 
the subjects mentioned above, or from the first year of the 
course in the College of Law. 

The "major" must consist of nine hours in one department 
(not counting the Freshman work) and must be approved by 
the head of the department chosen. The choice of electives 
must meet with the approval of the Dean. 

The Bachelor's degree in Arts or Sciences will not be con- 
ferred upon a candidate offering twelve hours in Law until he 
has satisfactorily completed the second year of the course in 
the College of Law. 

Pre-Medical Course. — Students intending to study medi- 
cine are advised to take the regular B.S. course. Inasmuch, 
however, as many students are unable to spend four years on 
a non-professional course, the University offers a Two-year 
Pre-Medical Course.

Professor Anderson 

The study of the classics contributes largely to general cul- 
ture. In addition to the recognized and peculiar disciplinary 
value of such studies and their conspicuous service in cultivat- 
ing the literary sense and developing literary taste, they have 
a more immediate value and office as aids to the comprehension 
and interpretation of modern languages and literatures. A 
thoro study and a full understanding of the modern languages, 
especially the Romance languages and our own tongue, de- 
mand a considerable preliminary acquaintance with Latin and 
Greek. Thus from two points of view, that of their own in- 
trinsic beauty and value as culture studies and that of aids 
to the study of other languages, Latin and Greek command 
our attention and call for a large place in any curriculum 
which proposes to issue in a liberal education.

be taken for college credit.

Professor Farr 
Mr. Robertson 

The work is designed to meet the requirements for a prac- 


tical and liberal education, and is regarded both as a necessary 
auxiliary to the training in the technical courses and as an im- 
portant factor among the liberalizing studies. The three sides 
of the subject, Rhetoric, Linguistics, and Literature, are pre- 
sented as fully as time will permit. Rhetoric and composition 
are stressed in the lower classes, literary studies and linguistic 
work in electives ; nevertheless the attempt is made to keep the 
three viewpoints before all classes as necessary to a mastery 
of their native language. 

English I. — Advanced College Rhetoric. — Designed to 
train students in methods of clear and forceful expression. 
Instruction is carried on simultaneously in formal rhetoric, in 
rhetorical analysis, and in theme writing, the constant correla- 
tion of the three as methods of approach to the desired goal 
being kept in view. In addition a reading course is assigned 
each student. (Required of all Freshmen; 3 hours.) 

English Ila. — Development of English Prose. — This will 
follow the method of Minto's Manual in tracing historically 
the growth of English prose literature; supplemented by col- 
lateral readings and by essays. (First semester; 3 hours.) 

English 116. — Development of English Poetry. — A con- 
tinuation of English Ila, applying the method outlined above 
to the study of English poetry. (Second semester; 3 hours.) 

English Ula.— Milton and the Epic— A study of Para- 
dise Lost, around which are grouped studies in the Age of 
Milton and in the Epic as a type of Comparative Literature. 
The first four books of the poem are read in class. Written 
reviews on the remaining books alternate each week with 
essays from the student and lectures by the instructor. Read- 
ings in the minor poets of the age and in the English transla- 
tions of the great epics are assigned. (First semester; 3 

English Ulb. — Shakespeare and the Drama. — Three 
Shakesperian plays are read in class. On eight others a 
written review is held each fortnight, and on the alternate 
week essays are written by the students and lectures are given 
by the instructor. Readings in the English drama from the 
Cycle plays to contemporary production are assigned. (Sec- 
ond semester; 3 hours.) 

English IVa. — American Poetry. — A rapid survey of the 
development of poetry in the United States; critical study of 


a few of the more important authors (Bryant, Whittier, 
Longfellow, Emerson, Lowell, Poe). {First semester; 3 

English IV6. — Southern Literature. — A detailed study of 
the literature of the South ; extensive reading and essay work ; 
examination of the claims of Florida authors. {Second semes- 
ter; 3 hours.) 

English V. — The English Novel. — The chronological 
development and technic of the novel. The student reads a 
list of novels chosen to illustrate chronology and variety of 
species, analyzes minutely one novel from the technical side, 
masters the entire work and life of one novelist, and com- 
pares closely a novel and a dramatized version of it. It is 
hoped the student may be so grounded in the classics and 
his taste and judgment so trained that his reading of novels 
may not become mere intellectual dissipation. (3 hours.) 

English VL — The Romantic Revival. — A study in liter- 
ary movement: the causes and forces which underlie the 
movement, its phenomena and the authors and works which 
exhibit them, and a comparison with other movements in 
literature. The work of Prof. Beers will be used as a basis 
and the student will be led, by means of extensive reading, 
by investigation and essays, and by lectures, to realize the 
truth of his statements. (3 hours.) 

English VIL — Anglo-Saxon Grammar and Reading. — 
Drill in the forms of the early language and an elementary 
view of its relations to the other members of the Aryan fam- 
ily and of its development into Modern English. The texts 
in Bright's Anglo-Saxon Reader are studied, and Cook's edi- 
tion of Judith is read. (3 hours.) 

English VIIL — Chaucer and Middle English Grammar. — 
During the first semester the works of Chaucer are read in 
and out of class. Pronunciation, forms, scansion, condition of 
text, analogs, and sources are examined. During the second 
semester, Morris and Skeats' Specimens, Part II, is studied 
in connection with informal lectures on Middle English viewed 
as developing from Anglo-Saxon into Modern English. {Pre- 
requisite: English VII; 3 hours.) 

English IX. — Engineering Exposition. — An attempt to 
give special training to Engineering students in the prepara- 
tion of the various kinds of writing that they will be called 


upon to do in the pursuit of their profession. It will consist 
largely of the writing of papers (upon subjects assigned by 
the departments in the College of Engineering), which will 
be criticised and revised. (Engineering Seniors; 1 hour.) 


Mr. Chapman 

Expression and Public Speaking.— Particular attention 
is given to establishing a correct method of breathing, to cor- 
recting faulty articulation, and to teaching the principles of 
interpretation by voice, gesture, and facial expression. 

A small tuition fee is charged. 


Professor Ault 

The aim of this department is to train students to use his- 
torical and economic material with discrimination ; to develop 
a general knowledge of European, English, and American 
History, so indispensable to a general college course and espe- 
cially to a study of the Social Sciences; to furnish students 
with a survey of economic life and thought, such as every 
educated man is now supposed to have; and to explain the 
economic principles lying back of our present day wealth- 
getting and wealth-dispensing activities. 

Those entering the University for the first time, who have 
not had satisfactory courses in European or American His- 
tory, are advised to include these subjects among their studies 
as a general cultural foundation for their other work. To 
these should be added Economics I, which is a prerequisite to 
the other courses offered in Economics. 

With the exceptions of History I and H and of Economics 
I, all the courses listed below will not be offered each year.

Professor Keppel 


The work in the Department of Mathematics is planned 
with a threefold purpose in view: 

1. For those who intend to specialize in Mathematics it 
provides the preparation for more advanced work. Several 
advanced courses are offered each year for this class of 

2. To those who need Mathematics as an instrument it 
offers opportunities to become familiar with this instrument. 
The application of Calculus not only to Physics, Chemistry, 
and Engineering, but even to such seemingly remote realms 
as Psychology and Political Economy, makes it advisable 
that this class should continue the study of Mathematics at 
least so far as to include Calculus. 

3. To others it gives logical training in Analysis and 
Proof, introduces them to that scientific method par excel- 
lence of the Hypothesis, and develops the idea of a deductive 
system in its classical form. 

The following courses are offered each year: 
Mathematics A. — Solid Geometry. (2 hours.) 
Mathematics B. — Plane and Spherical Trigonometry. 
(2 hours.) 

Mathematics I. — Plane Analytic Geometry and College 
Algebra. (3 hours.) 

Mathematics II. — Spherical Trigonometry and Elemen- 
tary Calculus. (1 hour.) 

Mathematics III. — Differential and Integral Calculus. 
(3 hours.) 


Mathematics IV. — Solid Analytic Geometry and Calcu- 
lus. (2 hours.) 

Mathematics V. — Advanced Calculus and Differential 
Equations. (3 hours.) 

The following advanced courses were offered in 1917-18: 

Mathematics VI. — Theory of Equations and Modern 
Higher Algebra. (3 hours.) 

Mathematics VII. — Modern Projective Geometry. (3 


In connection with the Department of Mathematics a 
course in General Astronomy is offered, consisting of lec- 
tures and recitations, with practical exercises. No knowledge 
of advanced mathematics is presupposed. (2 hours.)

Military instruction is not optional, but is required by 
law — by the law of the United States and by the law of the 

Excused from Military Duty. — Graduate and Law stu- 
dents. Seniors, Juniors in the Teachers College, Adult Spe- 
cials, those holding discharges from the U. S. army, navy, or 
marine corps after at least one term of enlistment, and the 
physically disqualified. 

The physically disqualified will be required to submit a 
certificate to that effect from the resident physician and will 
also, prior to graduation, be required to make up an equiva- 
lent amount of work in this or some other department. 

Those who have served for three years in the national 
guard may be excused from drills, and also, provided they 
pass an examination under the Professor of Military Science 
and Tactics, from theoretical work. 

Students will be given credit, year for year, for work done 
at military schools having army officers as instructors. 

Those taking the One- Year Course in Agriculture will 
be excused from the theoretical, but not from the practical 

All applications to be excused from military duty for other 
reasons must he submitted to the Professor of Military Sci- 
ence and Taetics, and all who are required to take military 


work mtLst report to him within five days after registering 
at the University. 

The General Faculty has adopted the following rules: 

1. Two (2) credit hours shall be the equivalent of three (3) 
drill hours. 

2. Students from other institutions entering the Junior or Senior 
class without having had the requisite amount of military instruction 
shall, unless physically disqualified, be required to take military science 
and drill for two (2) years, or one (1) year, respectively, excepting 
that in the Senior year a study equivalent may be substituted for drill. 

3. Pupils entering the eleventh or twelfth grades shall be excused 
after drilling for three (3) years here. 

The National Defense Act of June 3, 1916, authorizes the 
organization of an Officers' Reserve Corps, members of which 
may be assigned by the President of the United States to 
temporary duty in time of peace or to duty in time of war. 
While so assigned they receive the pay and allowances of 
their grade. 

One method of securing members for this corps is by 
utilizing the voluntary services of graduates of universities 
and colleges that maintain a course of military instruction, 
hence the Act of June 3 authorizes the President to establish 
and maintain at such institutions a Reserve Officers' Train- 
ing Corps (R.O.T.C.). 

The R.O.T.C. is composed of two divisions: a senior and 
a junior division, the former of which is maintained at insti- 
tutions having a four-year course leading to a degree. 

Each division consists of units — such as infantry units, 
artillery units, etc. 

Under the provisions of the Act of June 3, the Secre- 
tary of War has prescribed a standard course of instruction 
covering four years. The first two years' course is compul- 
sory and its successful completion necessary for graduation. 
The second two years' course is voluntary upon the part of 
the student. However, having once entered upon the course, 
the student must, in order to secure the benefits accruing, 
carry it to a completion, and must, to secure the credits neces- 
sary for graduation, make up time lost. 

Membership in this corps is restricted to physically fit 
students over fourteen years of age who are citizens of the 
United States, but who are not members of the U. S. Army, 
Navy or Marine Corps, or of the National Guard or Naval 


Sec. 50, Act of June 3, reads: 

" When any member of the Senior division of the Reserve Officers' 
Training Corps has completed two academic years of service in that 
division, and has been selected for further training by the president of 
the institution, and by its professor of military science and tactics, and 
has agreed in writing to continue in the Reserve Officers' Training 
Corps for the remainder of his course in the institution, devoting five 
hours per week to the military training prescribed by the Secretary 
of War, and has agreed in writing to pursue the courses in camp train- 
ing prescribed by the Secretary of War, he may be furnished, at the 
expense of the United States, with commutation of subsistence at such 
rate, not exceeding the cost of the garrison ration prescribed for the 
Army, as may be fixed by the Secretary of War, during the remainder 
of his service in the Reserve Officers' Training Corps." 

The commutation of subsistence is 30 cents per day thru- 
out the calendar year. The camp training is limited at present 
to four weeks at the end of the Junior and of the Senior years. 
Commutation is not paid, but subsistence in kind is furnished 
during the encampment. 

The President is authorized to appoint in the Officers' 
Reserve Corps any graduate of the Senior Division of the 
R.O.T.C. who shall have satisfactorily completed the prescribed 
courses of military training, including the practical instruc- 
tion subsequent to graduation, who shall have arrived at 
twenty-one years of age and who shall agree, under oath 
in writing, to serve the United States in the capacity of a 
reserve officer of the Army during a period of at least ten 
years from the date of such appointment, unless sooner dis- 
charged by proper authority. Graduates pursuing a further 
course of study are not eligible, but may receive an appoint- 
ment later. 

The President is authorized to appoint and commission as 
a temporary second lieutenant of the Regular Army, in time 
of peace and for the purposes of instruction, for a period 
not exceeding six months, with the allowances now provided 
by law for that grade, but with pay at the rate of $100.00 
per month, any reserve officer appointed as above described. 
Upon the expiration of this service with the Regular Army 
such officer shall revert to his status as a reserve officer. 

Under the present regulations this appointment and 
assignment to duty with the army may immediately follow 
graduation, in which case the four weeks' course at the train- 
ing camp will be omitted. 

Upon the application of the President of the University, 
approved by the Board of Control, an Infantry Unit, Senior 


Division, R.O.T.C, has been established at the University of 

After a unit, R.O.T.C, has been established, the War 
Department is authorized to issue to the institution for each 
member of the unit the following articles of uniform: 

1 pair breeches, woolen, olive drab. 

1 cap, olive drab. 

1 coat, woolen, olive drab. 

1 leggins, canvas, pair. 

1 cap and collar ornament, set. 

1 pair shoes, russet. 

For each member of the unit who has agreed in writing 
to participate in the prescribed course of instruction, the 
War Department is authorized to issue to the institution the 
following additional articles of uniform: 

1 hat, service. 

1 hat cord. 

2 pairs breeches, cotton, olive drab. 
2 shirts, flannel, olive drab. 

Tho issued for the use of individual members of the unit, 
the uniform remains the property of the United States. 



Nos. 1 and 2 of the courses outlined below are required of 
Freshmen, 3 and 4 of Sophomores; 5 and 6 are for Juniors 
who sign, and 7 and 8 for Seniors who have signed, the agree- 
ment to remain in the R.O.T.C. during the remainder of their 
stay at the University. 

For use in military records, "units" and ''weights" are 
assigned as follows: 1, 2, 3, and 4 come three times per 
week and count 14 units each; 5, 6, 7, and 8 come five times 
per week and count 24 units each. In each of 1, 2, 3, and 4, 

(a) has a weight of 10, (b) a weight of 4; in each of 5, 6, 
7, and 8, (a) has a weight of 13, (b) a weight of 11.

This department aims to foster a love for good music and 
to encourage students to use their musical abilities and train- 
ing for the benefit of themselves and others. It trains and 
directs the student chorus, the chapel choir, the Glee and Man- 
dolin and Guitar Clubs, the Orchestra, and the University 
Band, and offers private instruction in voice and in violin and 
other instruments. It seeks to cooperate with the musical 
organizations of Gainesville and in conjunction with them to 
give several public entertainments during the year. (See also 
under Student Organizations, page 33.) 

Owing to the lack of funds for the department, a small 
tuition fee is charged for private instruction. 


Professor Cox 

The primary aim of this department is to give the student 
a broad outlook upon life in general, as well as a better un- 
derstanding of his own life from psychological, ethical, and 
metaphysical viewpoints. Philosophy lies nearer today than 
ever before to the various sciences on the one hand and to 
the demands of practical life on the other. 

Another very important aim is to aid in the professional 


training of teachers. For description of the equipment for 
carrying on mental and physical tests, see page 21. 

Students may begin with Course la, lla, or Ilia. Juniors 
and Seniors may begin also with Course Vila.

physical education 

Professor Buser 

This department has jurisdiction over all athletic, aquatic, 
and gymnastic activities. It seeks: (1) To develop health, 
vigor, and good physical habits; (2) to provide an incentive 
and an opportunity for every student to secure at least one 
hour's physical activity daily as a balance to the sedentary de- 
mands of university life; (3) to conserve the social and moral 
values of games and sports; (4) to encourage and develop in- 
tramural sports; and (5) to make athletic sports an essential 
factor in military training. 

Students will not be excused from the prescribed training 
during the first two years without substituting a satisfactory 
equivalent. They are supposed to be able to swim a distance 


of fifty yards by the end of the Sophomore year. No student 
will be permitted, however, to participate in competitive 
games, either of intercollegiate or intramural grade, or to be- 
come a candidate for football or other team, until he has se- 
cured, after examination, the written permission of a com- 
petent physician. 

All activities will be conducted out of doors in so far as 
the weather will permit. The regulation suit consists of white 
sleeveless shirt, running pants, supporter, and rubber-soled 

When needed, special coaches are engaged to assist the

Professor Benton 
Assistant Professor Perry 

The work of this department is intended to meet the needs, 
on the one hand, of those who study physics as a part of a 
liberal education and, on the other hand, of those who will 
have to apply physics as one of the sciences fundamental to 
engineering, or to medicine. 

Instruction is given by (1) recitations based upon lessons 
assigned in textbooks; (2) laboratory work, in which the 
student uses his own direct observation to gain knowledge of 
the subject; (3) lectures, in which experimental demonstra- 
tions of the principles under discussion are given; and (4) 
seminar work in the advanced courses, in which the various 
members of the class take up special problems requiring 
extended study or investigation and report upon them. 

The physical laboratory (see page 20) is well equipt for 
the experiments usually required in undergraduate laboratory 
work in the best colleges. The equipment has been greatly 
increased in the last few years and additions are made to it 
from year to year.

Aim and Scope. — The college was established under the 
Acts of Congress creating and endowing institutions for the 
liberal and practical education of the industrial classes in the 
different states. Recognition of agriculture as a branch of 
collegiate instruction is a distinctive feature of the schools thus 
founded. The aim of the College is to afford young men the 
best possible opportunity for gaining technical knowledge and 


training in the art and science of agriculture. About one-third 
of the student's time is devoted to technical studies and the 
other two-thirds to basic sciences and cultural studies. A broad 
foundation is thus laid which will enable graduates to become 
either leaders in educational work or effective producing agri- 

Equipment. — Agricultural Hall provides space for offices ; 
for classrooms in Agronomy, Animal Husbandry, and Agri- 
cultural Engineering; for laboratories in soils and fertilizers, 
crops and grain judging, farm machinery, farm power, milk 
testing, dairy manufactures, etc. 

Libraries. — A large number of works on agriculture and 
horticulture have recently been added to the general library. 
A trained librarian is in charge to aid students in getting 
quickly the references needed. Each department has, further- 
more, a small collection of well-selected volumes, which are 
always accessible to students. The Experiment Station library 

contains a very complete set of bulletins from the experiment 
stations of the world and from the U. S. Department of Agri- 
culture. These are fully indexed and carefully filed. The 
Experiment Station library is open every forenoon. 

Farms. — The College farm, used for instruction and for 
growing crops with which to feed the instruction herds, con- 
sists of 225 acres : 10 acres for trucking, 100 acres for pasture 
and field crops, 5 acres for orchard, 15 acres for soiling pur- 
poses and stock lots, and 5 acres for buildings and grounds. 
The equipment includes a hay and storage barn, a farm fore- 
man's house, a dairy barn, a machinery shed and corn crib, a 
potting house, and several irrigation systems. The Experi- 
ment Station farm and farm buildings are easily accessible to 


The Agronomy Department occupies four rooms — a large, 
well-lighted and equipt soil laboratory, with adjoining storage 
and work rooms, an office, and a classroom. 

The soil laboratory equipment comprises microscopes, 
sampling augers, tubes, and carriers; balances, ovens, soil 
thermometers, packers, cylinders, and tubes; moisture ab- 
sorption box with trays; percolation, capillary, and evapora- 
tion apparatus; sieves, shaker, etc. The equipment is of the 
best type and fully adequate for giving thoro courses in soils. 


There are three large stone-top desks with individual lockers 
for seventy-two students. The storage room is provided with 
soil bins, packer, cases, and shelving in abundance. 

For Agricultural Enginee^^ing work there are two labora- 
tories — the one for farm motors and iron work, the other for 
farm machinery and wood work. These laboratories are 
equipt with a large collection of labor-saving machinery : gas- 
oline engines, windmills, feed grinders, stalk cutter, walking 
and riding plows, various types of harrows, walking and rid- 
ing cultivators, seeders, one and two-horse corn planters, 
manure spreader, surveying implements, etc. Stress is laid 
upon instruction in farm machinery, because labor-saving 
appliances have not yet come into general use upon Florida 


In addition to classrooms and laboratories, ample provi- 
sion is made for practical work outdoors. A propagating 
house and nursery on the farm are used in carrying on strati- 
fication, Jayerage, cuttage, budding, grafting, and other meth- 
ods of plant propagation ; trees of different kinds are growing 
in the orchard, which, though still small, is being gradually 
enlarged ; hot beds and cold frames are provided for starting 
young plants; an irrigation plant has been installed with 
Skinner, Campbell, Skinner-Stephens, Florida Favorite, and 
modified Skinner sprinkling devices, and a surface furrow 
system ; and large canvas-covered frames for growing crops 
to maturity in winter have been constructed. 


The Animal Husbandry Department is provided with a 
lecture-room containing seats for sixty students and a pad- 
dock, 12x24 feet in size, with concrete floor and iron railing, 
for exhibiting animals. The equipment includes a two-ton 
Fairbanks platform scale, tape lines, measuring standards, 
and projectors. In the dairy barn a stock-judging arena, 30x40 
feet, has been provided for practice in scoring animals. 

The equipment in Veterinary Science consists of mounted 
skeletons of the horse and cow, wall charts on anatomy and 
physiology, veterinary operating instruments, and sample 
jars of common drugs and medicines. 

For work in Dairying the College has a large, well-lighted 
laboratory, equipt with several makes of hand-power cream 


separators, churns, and butter workers; milk cooler, gravity 
creamer, vats for cream ripening and cheese making; scales, 
wash sinks, sterilizer, and minor apparatus. 

The milk-testing laboratory contains working desks and 
machinery for all modern tests of dairy products. The equip- 
ment includes Babcock testers of different sizes, cream scales, 
lactometers, acidmeters, butter-moisture tests, and the nec- 
essary glassware, reagents, etc. 

The equipment for Poultry Instruction includes incubator, 
brooders, and various poultry-yard appliances. Poultry 
breeders of the vicinity aid in the work by lending selected 
fowls for judging purposes. 

The Barns and Livestock include: A barn for the horses 
and mules used on the farm and campus; a large dairy bam 
of modern sanitary construction, provided with concrete floors 
and silos, steel stanchions and fittings, for the herd of high- 
grade and registered Jerseys belonging to the Experiment 
Station; a number of pens and grazing-yards with modern 
shelters and equipment, containing small breeding herds of 
Berkshire, Poland China, Duroc Jersey, Tamworth, and Ches- 
ter White hogs. Other breeds and classes of animals are being 
added from year to year. A concrete dipping-vat, built in 
cooperation with the Florida State Board of Health, is used 
for demonstrations of cattle-tick eradication. 

The County and State Fairs of Florida provide excellent 
practice each year in showing and in judging animals. Stu- 
dents are encouraged to take part in judging contests and to 
aid in show-ring work whenever practicable. The Southeast- 
ern Fair, Atlanta, Ga., offers prizes and medals to competing 
teams from all southern Agricultural Colleges. The Alachua 
County Fair, at Gainesville, and the Florida State Fair, at 
Jacksonville, offer special cash prizes and diplomas to stu- 
dents making the best records in stock judging. Several large 
herds of cattle and hogs within a few miles of the University, 
in Alachua and Marion Counties, are constantly available for 
inspection and judging purposes. The meat-packing houses 
and dairy plants of Jacksonville and vicinity are freely offered 
for study, and trips for this purpose under the guidance of in- 
structors are arranged each year. 

The Agricultural Club. — The purpose of the Agricul- 
tural Club is to train the student in public speaking and in 


preparing for leadership. It also gives an opportunity for 
gaining a greater familiarity with the general agricultural 
trend. Every student is urged to become a member. 

Scholarships and Loan Funds.— Available during 1917- 
1918 were : 

William Wilson Finley Foundation, $1,000 Loan Fund. 

Bankers' Loan Fund. — The State Bankers' Association at 
their annual meeting in St. Augustine, 1917, voted a Loan 
Fund of One Thousand Dollars to students in agriculture. 
Those eligible to the loan must be recommended by the Presi- 
dent and the Auditor of the University. 

Corn Club Scholarships — Bankers' Prize of $200.

frequently occur for students to work in the fields and truck 
gardens, about the bams, in the buildings, and at the Agricul- 
tural Experiment Station. The compensation ranges from 


ten to twenty cents per hour, according to the experience of 
the student and the nature of the work. Those who, during 
vacation periods, find employment in agricultural pursuits will 
be markedly benefited and after graduation will command 
more desirable positions or find their efforts on the farm more 
effective. [See also Opportunities for Earning Expenses, 
page 31.] 

Electives. — The elective hours in each of the groups 
printed below may be chosen from other groups or from other 
colleges of the University; but the choice is, in every case,

♦Attendance upon Military Drill is required. 



The work of each semester of the One- Year Course out- 
lined above has been so planned as to form of itself a well 
rounded course of study which can be pursued to advantage 
by those unable to spend more than four months at the Uni- 
versity. Each of these Four-Month Short Courses, one of 
which begins on September 17, 1918, and the other on January 
27, 1919, should appeal to farmers who wish to increase their 
productive power, to young men who expect to become farm- 
ers, and to those who are turning from other lines of work in 
order to obtain the advantages of country life. 

Military Drill is not required of those who take only one of 
these courses, but is required of those who take both during 
the same scholastic year. 


Beginning January 7, 1919, and ending January 16, 1919. 

The Farmers' Ten-Day Course is offered to meet the needs 
of those who cannot pursue a longer course. It is especially 
suited to the following classes : Farmers of all ages who recog- 
nize their need for some training in scientific agriculture in 
order to render more effective the practical knowledge they 
have already gained; young men who are compelled to drop 
out of school and yet desire to devote a short time to special 
preparation for work upon the farm ; city students who wish 
to fit themselves for farm life ; and colonists who wish infor- 
mation regarding Florida conditions and methods. 

The laboratory equipment, the purebred live stock, and the 
farms will be available for instruction in the Short Courses; 
the Agricultural Experiment Station will afford opportunity 
for observation and inquiry. Care has been taken to arrange 
this course to meet the needs of the practical farmer. The 
course will consist of lectures, laboratory work, and field obser- 
vations and demonstrations in general field crops, soils, horti- 
culture, animal husbandry, and dairying. 

There are no age limits and no educational requirements 
for admission. 

Expenses. — The necessary expenses for the Farmers' 
Short Course for those who board at the University are : 

Board, room, heat, and light for eleven days $ 7.00 

Laundry and Incidentals (estimated) 1.00 

Total $ 8.00 


The rooms in the dormitories are supplied with necessary 
furniture, but each student is required to bring sufficient 
bedding for his own use. 

The necessary expenses for the Farmers' Ten-Day Course 
for those who board and room in Gainesville are: 

Board, room, etc $10.00 

Laundry and Incidentals (estimated) 1.00 

Total $11.00 


Dean Rolfs 
Mr. Weaver 

The modern university does not limit its services to those 
that come to study on the campus, the number of whom is 
necessarily small, but seeks to extend its benefits to every 
community in its state. Hence the College of Agriculture 
endeavors, thru its Extension Division and its Correspondence 
Courses, to reach and to help every rural district in Florida. 
The Legislature of 1909, it is true, authorized instruction in 
agriculture in the public schools ; nevertheless, there are many 
on the farm who still feel the need of agricultural training. 
It is for these, for teachers, for prospective farmers, and for 
new settlers unacquainted with Florida conditions, that cor- 
respondence courses are offered. 

It is not expected that these courses can be as effective as 
resident study, wherein the student has the advantages of labo- 
ratory equipment and of personal contact with competent in- 
structors. But those who cannot attend the University will 
find the courses profitable and instructive. Their effectiveness 
is limited only by the initiative and diligence of the student. 

Fourteen courses, organized according to recognized stand- 
ards, are offered. Others will be added as rapidly as demands 
justify. For the convenience of persons who wish to special- 
ize in some branch of agriculture, the courses given are 
grouped into five divisions. Any one or all of the courses may 
be taken. It is best, however, to pursue them in some logical 

(A) For Farmers. — The following courses are offered: 

Elementary Agriculture Manures and Fertilizers 

Soils Fertilizers and Crops (advanced 
Tillage course) 

Drainage and Irrigation Field Crops 


Breeds of Livestock, Feeds and Poultry Production 

Feeding Citrus Fruits and Citrus Culture 

Dairy Production Trucking 

Swine Production Cooperation in Agriculture 

These are grouped under the heads: Animal Husbandry, 
Dairying, Agronomy, Citrus Culture, and Trucking. Element- 
ary Agriculture stands first in each group and will be found 
invaluable as a basis for practical farming and further study. 

The agronomy group is of special interest to those living in 
the northern and western parts of the State, the citrus and 
trucking groups to those in the southern and central portions, 
dairying and animal husbandry to those living anywhere in 
Florida. Those wishing to specialize in some branch of agri- 
culture will find the groups in trucking, citrus, poultry, and 
dairying valuable. The general farmer will be interested in 
animal husbandry, agronomy, and perhaps, dairying. 

(B) For Teachers. — Altho only Elementary Agricul- 
ture is necessary for teachers preparing for the examination 
required for a certificate, nevertheless they would find all the 
courses offered for farmers helpful, as they cannot hope to ren- 
der the best service without additional knowledge of agricul- 

To cover office expenses a registration fee of $1.00 is 
charged for each course. Florida students pay no tuition fee ; 
others are charged a nominal sum, the amount of which de- 
pends upon the course. Students must buy textbooks and 
pay postage on manuscripts to and from the University. Regis- 
tration may be made at any time during the year. Both men 
and women are eligible. Negroes are referred to the Agricul- 
tural and Mechanical College for Negroes, at Tallahassee. For 
further information apply to the Dean of the College of Ag- 


A large number of people interested in agriculture meet 
annually at the University. These find excellent accomoda- 
tions and facilities better for their purposes than anywhere 
else in the State. Laboratories, classrooms, and exhibits, as 
well as the growing crops, barns, and other equipment, are 
placed freely at their service. 

The following meetings were held during the past year : 

County Demonstration Agents, October 1-6. 

Citrus Seminar Class, October 10-16. 


Eighth Annual Citrus Seminar, October 1-6, 

Boys' Short Course in Agriculture, December 3-8. 

Live-stock Round Up, September 25-28.

Aim and Scope. — Agricultural experiment stations are 
institutions, founded by Congressional act, the purpose of 
which is to acquire and diffuse agricultural knowledge. From 
the enacting clause it is evident that Congress intended to 
establish with every college and university receiving the 
benefits of the original "Land-Grant Act" an institution for 
purely investigational work. The Florida Agricultural Ex- 
periment Station was founded in 1888 and has continued 
without interruption. Inasmuch as its funds are received 
from Federal sources, it must comply with the require- 
ments of the Federal law. Its income must be used for the 
purpose of acquiring new and important knowledge in regard 
to crops and soils and no part can be expended, directly or in- 
directly, for teaching purposes or for holding Farmers' Insti- 
tutes, and only five per cent for building or making repairs. 
In order to receive the benefits of the Adams' fund, the Station 
must submit plans for proposed experiments to the U. S. De- 
partment of Agriculture for approval before any of the 
moneys are spent in investigation. 

Advantages of Location. — The advantages of having 
the Agricultural Experiment Station at the University are 
obvious. At frequent intervals the investigators deliver pop- 
ular and technical lectures, either to the student-body as a 
whole or to special clubs and local organizations. As the 
fields and orchards of the Station are used solely for experi- 
mental purposes and as its laboratories are planned and con- 
ducted for research work, they contribute to the opportunities 
of the students for studying methods of scientific investiga- 
u. f. — 7 


tion. Some of those with special aptitude have an opportunity 
of assisting the specialists in charge. 

Minor positions, such as those of laboratory assistant, are 
occasionally open and, whenever practicable, are given to 
graduates of the University. Such assistants are paid a small 
salary for half of their time and during the other half are 
free to take studies leading to higher degrees. 

Building. — See page 17. 

Lines of Investigation. — The lines of investigation car- 
ried on fall naturally into several departments; Horticulture, 
including the introduction, breeding, and propagation of 
plants ; Animal Industry, including the study of feed crops, the 
effect of feeding certain crops to cattle and hogs and the 
growing of feed and forage crops; Agronomy, including the 
breeding of cotton, corn, and other farm crops; Plant Path- 
ology, including the study of plant diseases produced by fungi 
and bacteria ; Plant Physiology, including the study of plants 
as affected by fertilizer and soil conditions; Chemistry, in- 
cluding the study of fertilizers and soils, especially as to their 
effects on plants ; Entomology, including the study of insecti- 
cides and insects and their parasites. The work of the 
Station is, however, not sharply divided among these 
different departments. The Staff formulate what are 
known as projects, the work on which is continued re- 
gardless as to whether its ramifications take it into one or 
another department, and not infrequently two or more depart- 
ments are engaged in the solution of the same project — in 
other words, the work is limited only by the abilities of the 
Staff and the resources of the institution. 

Projects. — Some of the more important projects are: 

1. The study of soils and fertilizers in their relation to plant growth 
and development. 

2. The study of certain citrus diseases, such as Gumming, Mela- 
nose, Canker, Anthracnose, Blight, and Stem-End Decay. 

3. The study of vegetable diseases — cantaloupe blight, bacterial 
diseases of cucumbers and other vegetables and seed bed diseases affect- 
ing Lettuce, Celery, Eggplant, and Tomatoes. 

4. The study of a disease (hitherto unstudied) of the pecan which is 
affecting this crop in different localities. 

5. The study of Pineapple wilts. 

6. The study of Velvet Bean caterpillar. 

7. The control of Root-knot. 

8. The control of Camphor and other thrips, and scale insects. 

9. Studies in the effect upon citrus trees of different quantities and 
combinations of the nutrient elements. 


10. Experiments in milk, pork, and beef production to determine 
the most economical feeds. 

11. The trying out of different forage crops for all kinds of live 

12. Experiments with different kinds of silage with the view to 
determining the best for the use of the Florida stock raiser. 

Publications. — Compilations and information of a gen- 
eral nature cannot be printed from Federal funds, hence the 
publications of the Experiment Station are limited to reports 
of work done by members of its Staff. The publications per- 
missible fall into three classes : Bulletins, Press Bulletins, and 
Annual Reports. The Bulletins contain the more or less com- 
plete results of some particular investigation. At least four 
are issued annually ; one hundred and forty-five numbers have 
appeared. The Press Bulletins are prepared in order to bring 
to the citizens of Florida information connected with the in- 
vestigations that are being carried on, before all the work 
necessary for the publishing of a Bulletin has been completed. 
They are issued at short intervals, two hundred and eighty- 
six having already appeared. The Annual Reports contain a 
brief statement of the work done, as well as of the expendi- 
ture of funds. Twenty-seven have been published. 

All of these publications are distributed free upon request.

The Agricultural Extension Division, having in view the 
welfare of the farm family as a whole, supports a system of 
practical education. It teaches the results of scientific experi- 
ments in farm crops and livestock, in orchards and gardens, 
as well as gives practical information gained by experience. 
It offers farm women instruction in home economics — prac- 
tical instruction in the home or at a community center; 
scientific instruction thru special courses at the State College 
for Women. It trains the boys and girls of farm homes thru

County Cooperative Demonstration Work was started by 
the late Dr. Seaman A. Knapp, who had in view the improve- 
ment of rural conditions in the South. The Southern Educa- 
tion Board bore the entire expense until 1910 and a part of 
the expense until 1913. The advent and spread of the Texas 
cotton boll-weevil proved so threatening to the agricultural 
interests of Florida that in 1911 the State Legislature made 
an annual appropriation of $5000 to offset Federal funds 
already appropriated by Congress. The good accomplished 
and the increasing need led in 1914 to the passage by Congress 
of the Smith-Lever Bill. 

The State Legislature has enacted laws enabling Florida 
to secure all the benefits of the Smith-Lever Act and of other 
appropriations of Congress. Hence, at the beginning of the 
calendar year of 1918, the State has the services of specialists 
for the promotion of its livestock, dairying, fruit, and trucking 
interests, as well as its proportionate part of the War Emer- 
gency Appropriation of 1917 providing for agricultural 


workers; and every county in the State has an Agricultural 
and Home Demonstration Agent to develop its permanent 
agricultural interests and, as a war measure, to increase and 
conserve the food crop. 

Until 1913 the Demonstration Work was conducted inde- 
pendently of the College of Agriculture. The provisions of the 
Smith-Lever Act, however, require that this work shall be 
carried on cooperatively by the U. S. Department of Agricul- 
ture and the State according to a plan to be agreed upon by 
the Chief of the Office of the Farmers' Cooperative Extension 
Work, representing the Department of Agriculture, and by the 
Director of the Agricultural Extension Division, representing 
the College of Agriculture of the University. Because of the 
close relationship existing between the College of Agriculture 
and the farming interests of the State, the wisdom of these 
provisions is self-evident. 

Smith-Lever Act. — Thru this Act of Congress, which 
went into effect on July 1, 1914, the College of Agriculture 
receives $10,000 annually, to be expended for Cooperative 
Demonstration Work in Agriculture and Home Economics. 
An additional sum, increasing annually, also becomes available, 
provided the State appropriates an equal amount. Each suc- 
ceeding Legislature has met this requirement. The total 
amount from these sources for the fiscal year of 1917-1918 is 

The purpose of the Act may be seen from the following 
quotation : 

"That cooperative agricultural extension work shall consist of the 
giving of instruction and practical demonstrations in agriciilture and 
home economics to persons not attending or resident in said colleges in 
the several communities, and imparting to such persons information on 
said subjects through field demonstrations, publications, and otherwise; 
and this work shall be carried on in such a manner as may be mutually 
agreed upon by the Secretary of Agriculture and the State agricultural 
college or colleges receiving the benefits of this act." 

Organization. — The organization for Florida consists of: 

The Director, the chief executive in shaping and directing 

The Assistant Director, who supervises the work carried 
on at headquarters and aids in directing that done in the field. 
He is charged with the direction of cooperative specialists. 

The State Agent, who has direct supervision of County 
Agents. His duties are outlined by the Chief of the Farmers' 


Cooperative Work, Washington, D. C, and the Director of the 
Agricultural Extension Division. 

The State Home Demonstration Agent, who has general 
supervision of the women's and girls' work carried on by 
County Agents. 

District Agents, who visit regularly the County Agents, 
advising them and planning their work. For the men's work 
the State is divided into three districts of eighteen counties 
each: (1) the counties in North and East Florida; (2) those 
in West Florida; and (3) those in Central and South Florida. 
The women's work is supervised by two District Agents, work- 
ing under the State Agent — one in charge of West, North, and 
East Florida ; the other of Central and South Florida. 

Boys' Agricultural Club Agents, who have general charge 
of the Corn, Pig, and Peanut Clubs organized by County 
Agents with the cooperation of teachers and superintendents 
of public schools. 

The Poultry Club Agent, who is in charge of the Women's 
and Girls' Poultry Clubs organized by County Home Demon- 
stration Agents. 

The Home Dairying Agent, who seeks by stimulating the 
production of sanitary milk and good butter and by teaching 
the proper dietary use of dairy products to advance the dairy- 
ing interests of the State. 

Specialists from the Bureaus of the U. S. Department of 
Agriculture, assigned to work with the Extension Division. 
Such specialists are now engaged in studying : 

(a) Hog-Cholera Control. 

(b) Beef and Mutton Production. 

(c) Sweet Potato Storage. 

(d) Truck Insects. 

(e) Distribution of Farm Labor. 

(f ) Insects of Stored Grains. 

County Agents, who visit farms and homes to enlist co- 
operation and to help in carrying out better methods of farm- 
ing, or of home economics, that may serve as a demonstration 
to the community, organize Farmers' Cooperative Associa- 
tions and Agricultural Clubs, and work to upbuild agricultural 
interests by stimulating the production of crops and live- 
stock. Each County Agent has a centrally located office, usu- 
ally at the county seat, where supplies, records, and a liberal 
supply of the best agricultural literature are kept and where 


he spends one day each week for consultations. All agents 
are required to file weekly, monthly, and yearly reports. 

County Agents are selected, on recommendation of the 
State Agent and his assistants, because of educational quali- 
fications and training for work peculiar to the conditions of 
the county to which they are assigned. 

Counties desiring to cooperate are required to defray a 
part of the expenses incurred by the employment of County 
Agents — a minimum of $600 for a County Demonstration 
Agent and from $300 to $400 for a Home Demonstration 

For the fiscal year ending June 30, 1917, forty-five counties 
made appropriations for the employment of County Demon- 
stration Agents and thirty-eight for the employment of Home 
Demonstration Agents. Counties not making appropriations 
will be supplied with both County and Home Demonstration 
Agents until June 30, 1918, from Federal Emergency Funds. 

Schools for Demonstration Agents. — The Farm 
Demonstration Agents are assembled annually for instruction 
at the University, the Home Demonstration Agents at the 
State College for Women. The programs consist of lectures 
by the professors of the College of Agriculture and the mem- 
bers of the Experiment Station Staff, and of papers by County 
and State Agents and successful farmers. Plans for the 
year's work are discussed from every angle, so that the great- 
est amount of work can be accomplished with the agencies at 

Group Meetings. — County Agents are assembled in 
groups of five or six on well-managed farms to observe the 
best practices and to secure information from the managers. 
Six locations were visited in 1917. 


Corn Clubs. — The following summary of the work accom- 
plished in 1917 shows what progress the Corn Club idea has 
made in Florida : 

Total number of boys enrolled 1132 

Total number of boys reporting 413 

Average number of bushels per acre 37.67 

Average cost per bushel j $0,461 

Total number of bushels reported 15,531.54 

Value at $1.50 per bushel $23,297.31 

Total cost of production $6,969.31 

Net profit $16,328.00 


The four boys reporting the highest yields were : 

Name County Bu. per Acre Cost per Bu. 

Leroy Alderman Lake 106.5 $0.39 

Edgar Locke Lake 100.5 27 

Lawton Martin Marion 100.1 13 

Paul Parrish Polk 102.2 27 

Pig Clubs. — These clubs had in 1917 a total membership of 
652, distributed thruout counties having County Agents. The 
breeds represented were: Duroc Jersey, 520; Poland China, 
77 ; Berkshire, 40 ; Hampshire, 15. Two hundred and twenty- 
five boys reported weights and costs of feed. A summary of 
their reports follows : 

No. hogs entered for county contests 225 

Average weight at beginning 39.81bs. 

Average weight at date of contest 185.21t)s. 

Average net gain 145 .4 lbs. 

Average length of feeding period 147.3 days 

Average daily gain 991bs. 

Average cost per lb. gain $0.06 

Average price paid for pigs , $10.38 

Average cost of feed $8.23 

Average value of hogs at contest $50.30 

Average profit per hog $30.69 

Total profit $6905.25 


Girls' Canning Clubs. — Girls between the ages of ten 
and eighteen are eligible for membership. Each member is 
required to grow at least one-tenth of an acre of vegetables 
under the supervision of the County Home Demonstration 
Agent. At the close of the year's work, prizes are awarded 
on the basis of yield, profit, quality of product, and record. 
Prizes consist of money, household appliances, and scholar- 
ships to the Short Course offered by the State College for 
Women at Tallahassee. 

Girls' Poultry Clubs. — These are organized by the 
County Home Demonstration Agents. Girls between the ages 
of twelve and eighteen that have been successful in their 
canning-club work are enrolled. The club members are urged 
to secure the same breed of poultry, to give proper food and 
care, and to study standards of perfection and marketing 

Work in Homes. — The work in rural homes, which is 
usually taken up in families represented in a Canning Club, 
looks forward to screening the house, to introducing labor- 
saving conveniences, to providing an economical water supply, 


to disposing properly of sewage, to economising thru the 
preservation of waste vegetables and fruits, and to studying 
food conservation. 

The work in city homes is under the direction of the State 
Agent for Home Demonstration Work and is provided for by 
War Emergency funds. Specialists in Home Economics are 
teaching, in nine of the larger cities and towns of the State, 
food and fuel conservation, the use of substitutes for wheat, 
meat, and for animal fats, and are encouraging city gardening. 


Contests are held in each county at the close of the club 
year. The County Agents arrange a program in which par- 
ents of club members take active part. The boys are required 
to bring ten ears of corn — ^the girls, samples of their canned 
products — and a record of labor and cost of production. 


Farmers' Institutes. — Agricultural Extension work in 
Florida began with Farmers' Institutes, as it is more practical 
and economical for farmers to meet at a central point for in- 
struction and have their problems discussed by students of 
agriculture than to have each individual travel to the College 
for the same information. Without a systematic arrangement 
to meet demands for Institutes, unnecessary travel and ex- 
pense would be incurred, and without knowledge of the farm- 
ing needs, the greatest help to the greatest number could not be 
given; hence, when Institutes are desired, applications are to 
be filed with the Director of the Agricultural Extension 
Division and arrangements are to be made with the County 
Agents, who know local conditions and needs. 

It is proposed to organize Farmers' Associations in com- 
munity centers in every county in order to secure farm loans, 
cooperative marketing, school and social advantages, and a 
larger production of farm crops. 

Women's Institutes. — Applications for Women's Insti- 
tutes are to be made to the State Home Demonstration Agent, 
Tallahassee, Florida. Arrangements are completed by the 
District and County Home Demonstration Agents. These in- 
stitutes are sometimes held independently of Farmers' Insti- 
tutes, but more frequently at the same time and place. 


Women's Institutes are usually most effective in the communi- 
ties where Canning Clubs and Rural Betterment Clubs have 
been organized and where the fundamentals of preserving 
have been taught to the girls. Demonstrations in canning, 
preserving, handling milk and other dairy products and fresh 
meats, use of household conveniences — such as the iceless re- 
frigerator and fireless cooker — are given wherever possible. 
Women's Institutes work toward the organization of Home 
Improvement Clubs and provide a working plan for them. 

Field meetings. — Field Meetings are arranged by County 
Agents, and are usually held on the farm of a demonstrator 
who is carrying out their instructions. Neighboring farmers 
assemble to discuss the crops and methods of culture. A 
demonstration with hog cholera serum or in spraying fruit 
trees or a cattle dipping frequently takes place. 

Results. — The upward tendency of the agricultural in- 
terests of Florida dates from the beginning of systematic In- 
stitutes. Before this many counties produced very little either 
in crops or in improved livestock ; today practically all produce 
a fair amount of corn, hay, and other staple crops, silos and 
dipping vats have come into general use, and farmers are 
breeding purebred stock and buying from other states. 

During the past ten years the yield of corn has increased 
from 9.6 to 15 bushels per acre — in spite of the fact that most 
of the new lands brought into cultivation since 1907 are not as 
well adapted for corn growing as those which were farmed 
earlier. The total production of corn in Florida in 1907 was 
4,351,000 bushels; in 1917 it was 13,875,000 bushels— an in- 
crease of nearly 10,000,000 bushels. The production of other 
staple crops shows a similar improvement.

gained from the following summary :

The Bureau of Animal Industry, U. S. D. A., has assigned 
to the College of Agriculture four specialists to assist County- 
Agents in waging a spirited campaign against hog cholera and 
other hog diseases. Farmers are instructed how to prevent 
infection of their herds and how to check an incipient out- 
break; demonstrations with hog-cholera serum are given on 
farms where hog cholera is present. The work is planned so 
that as many farmers as possible may profit by the instruction 
and demonstrations.

Faculty. — J. R. Benton, R. E. Chandler, C. L. Crow, 
H. S. Davis, James M. Farr, H. B. Foster, C. Hecker, H. G. 
Keppel, J. L. McGhee, W. S. Perry, A. J. Strong, R. W, 
Thoroughgood, E. S. Walker. 


Aim and Scope. — It is the aim of the College of Engi- 
neering to furnish such training as will be useful to its 
graduates in the profession of engineering. Its courses of 
instruction are similar to those of other American engineer- 
ing schools of college grade; its graduates are prepared to 
fill such positions as are usually allotted to young engineers. 

Scholastic training alone cannot make a competent en- 
gineer, any more than it can make a competent physician or 
lawyer. It can, however, fit a man to enter the profession of 
engineering; and it is an important element in ultimate suc- 
cess in that profession. 

The work of the College is divided among courses of 
study of the following types: (1) Courses in the sciences 
fundamental to the practice of engineering, of which mathe- 
matics, chemistry, and physics are the most important; (2) 
courses in various branches of engineering practice in which 
those sciences are applied, such as structural engineering, 
steam and gas engineering, or electrical engineering; (3) 
courses in practical work, such as mechanic arts, drafting, or 
surveying; and (4) courses contributing primarily to general 
culture, such as those in English and in Spanish. 

Buildings and Equipment. — The headquarters and prin- 
cipal building of the College is Engineering Hall, which is 
described on page 17. A description of the engineering 
equipment is to be found on page 21. 

For shop work a separate building is used. (See page 16.) 

Part of the work of the College of Engineering coincides 
with that of the other colleges of the University ; for such work 
the same classrooms and laboratories are utilized. 

Admission. — See pages 34 to 41, inclusive. 


Benton Engineering Society. — ^Weekly meetings of this 
society are held, at which each member in turn presents a 
paper on some topic of interest to engineering students. Mem- 
bership in the society is strongly urged upon every student in 
the College. 

Expenses. — See page 29. 

Curricula and Degrees. — Four curricula, each requiring 
four years, are offered. They lead to the degrees of Bach- 
elor of Science in Civil Engineering (B.S.C.E.), Bachelor of 
Science in Electrical Engineering (B.S.E.E.), Bachelor of 
Science in Mechanical Engineering (B.S.M.E.), and Bachelor 
of Science in Chemical Engineering (B.S.Ch.E.), respectively. 

The Freshman year is the same for all engineering stu- 
dents ; the Sophomore year is the same for electrical and me- 
chanical engineering students. The work in English, Span- 
ish, mathematics, mechanics, and physics is the same thru- 
out the curriculum, for all engineering students, and in part 
coincides with that provided for students in the College of 
Arts and Sciences. All engineering students take some work 
in chemistry, drafting, and shop practice, but the time de- 
voted to these subject varies in the different curricula. 

The degree C.E., Ch.E., E.E., or M.E., may be granted to 
a graduate of the College upon recommendation of the head of 
the department in which it is sought, and with the concur- 
rence of the Faculty of the College, provided the candidate sub- 
mits evidence that he has had, subsequent to graduation, from 
two to five years of successful and responsible engineering 
practice. The length of time demanded will depend on the 
character of the professional experience, and on the average 
grade which the candidate obtained while an undergraduate, 
which must be 90 or more in order to obtain the degree in two 
years. By "responsible" experience is meant work in which 
the candidate has to use his own initiative, as distinguished 
from the mere rendering of routine assistance. 

The bachelor degree (B.S.C.E., B.S.Ch.E., B.S.E.E, or B.S. 
M.E.) indicates merely the completion of a course of study in 
the theory of engineering; while the later degree (C.E., Ch.E., 
E.E., or M.E.) indicates demonstrated proficiency in the prac- 
tice of some branch of engineering. Every student of engi- 
neering should look forward to obtaining one of these degrees 


To obtain one of these degrees application should be made 
to the Dean of the College not later than April 1st preceding 
the commencement at which the degree may be awarded.

At the request of the Federal Board for Vocational Educa- 
tion, and in accordance with the plan worked out in its Circular 
of Information, No. 1, the University of Florida has made 
provision for the training of conscripted men for service as 
radio and buzzer operators. Only conscripted men who have 
waived exemption and believe themselves physically fit for the 


Army or Navy, are admitted ; otherwise there are no entrance 
requirements. For the convenience of conscripted men living 
in Gainesville and its vicinity who wish to receive the instruc- 
tion without losing time from their occupations, the class has 
met at night; the apparatus is, however, also available for 
practice during the day. 

Monthly reports are made to the Federal Board for Voca- 
tional Education in Washington. Upon attaining the required 
degree of proficiency as an operator, each student receives a 
certificate to that effect, on a form provided by the govern- 

The work of the class is so arranged that new members can 
be admitted at any time, and can receive certificates of pro- 
ficiency whenever the necessary proficiency is attained. 

The class was organized on December 6, 1917, and will be 
continued as long as the Army and Navy are in need of having 
large numbers of radio operators trained.

Aim and Scope. — In 1891, the American Bar Association 
declared that in its opinion it was a part of the highest duty 
and interest of every civilized state to make provision, when 
necessary, for maintaining schools of law and for the thoro 
legal education of all who are licensed to practice law. Rec- 
ognizing the soundness of this doctrine and desiring to dis- 
charge this duty on the part of the State, the State Board of 
Education and the Board of Control provided for the opening 
of the College of Law in the University of Florida in Sep- 
tember, 1909. The advantages to accrue to the State from 
having, as a part of its educational system, a thoro and sys- 
tematic course of instruction in the common law, with special 
consideration of the peculiarities and exceptions applicable in 
Florida, are many and evident. 

It was the purpose of the Board of Control to establish 
a law school which, by the quality of its work and the char- 
acter of its equipment, would merit and command the con- 
fidence and support of the bench and bar of the State and of

the nation. That the hopes of accomplishing these results 
were well founded and that gratifying progress towards these 
ends has been made, are shown by the number and character 
of those who have availed themselves of the advantages offer- 
ed by the College of Law. 

Requirements for Admission. — See pages 34 to 41, in- 

Special Students. — See "Adult Specials," page 26. If 
entrance conditions are removed not later than the opening of 
the Senior year, such students may become regular students 
and candidates for a degree. 

Advanced Standing. — No work in law done in other in- 
stitutions will be accepted towards a degree, unless the appli- 
cant passes satisfactorily the examinations held in the sub- 
jects in question in this College, or unless, by special vote of 
the Faculty, credit is given without examination. In no case 
will credit be given for work not done in residence at an ap- 
proved law school. 

Examinations. — The last week of each semester is de- 
voted to examinations covering the work of the semester. 
These examinations are in writing and are rigid and search- 
ing, but are not necessarily final. 

University Practice Courts. — Thoroly organized prac- 
tice courts are regular features of the course of instruction in 
the third year. The object of the course in the Practice 
Courts is to give the student practical instruction in pleading 
and practice at law and in equity, and experience in the prep- 
aration and trial of cases. The work is arranged as follows : 

First. — Cases arising upon prepared statements of fact 
are assigned to the third-year students, upon which they are 
to determine what proceedings to bring and how to bring 
them, issue, serve, and return process, prepare the pleadings 
and bring the case to an issue on a question of law. The case 
is heard on the sufficiency of the form and the structure of 
the pleadings; when these are approved the issue of law is 
argued and decided, the students acting as attorneys draw- 
ing the order, judgment, or decree to which they deem them- 
selves entitled. 

Second. — In the second class of cases, actual controversies 
are arranged and assigned for trial in the Circuit Court as 


issues of fact. After determining what action to bring, the 
students assigned to the case are required to issue the proper 
process and prepare and file the necessary pleadings, subpoe- 
na the witnesses, select the jury, examine and cross-examine 
the witnesses, and argue the case to the jury. Each student 
is required to participate in the trial of at least one common- 
law, one equity, and one criminal case and is instructed in 
appellate procedure. 

The work of the Practice Court in Common Law Pleading 
and Procedure is conducted by Professor Crandall; that in 
Equity Pleading and Procedure by Professor Arnold ; that in 
Criminal Pleading and Procedure by Professor Summers. 

Library. — Law books are the working tools of the practic- 
ing lawyer. To teach the student how to use these tools, how 
to use the digests, encyclopedias, and reports, is as much the 
work of the law school as to teach him the general principles 
of the law. 

The College of Law has on its shelves the following books : 

Three sets of the Florida Reports with Wurts' Digest and Supple- 
ment; Shepard's Florida Citations; The Session Laws of Florida from 
1822 to 1915, except from 1828 to 1834; McClellan's Digest and Duval's 
Compilation of the Laws of Florida; Revised Statutes of 1898; three sets 
of the General Statutes of 1906; Florida Compiled Laws of 1914; Federal 
Statutes Annotated; Thorpe's American Charters, Constitutions and Or- 
ganic Laws; Hinds' Precedents of the House of Representatives; the 
Northwestern, Southwestern, Northeastern, Southeastern, Atlantic, Pa- 
cific, and Southern Reporters; the American Decisions, American Re- 
ports, and American State Reports, with digests; the American Annotated 
Cases, with digests; the Lawyers' Reports Annotated, old and new 
series, with digests; the United States Supreme Court Reports, with 
digests; Federal Cases; Federal Reporter; Stimson's American Statute 
Law; the State Reports to the Reporters of Alabama, Connecticut, Geor- 
gia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minne- 
sota, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio, 
Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia, and 
Wisconsin; the New York Court of Appeals Reports; the New York 
Common Law and Chancery Reports, with digests; the Pacific States 
Reports, with digests, which include the California Reports, the Colorado 
Supreme Reports, the Colorado Appeals, the Idaho Reports, the Kansas 
Reports, the Montana Reports, the Nevada Reports, the New Mexico 
Reports, the Oregon Reports, the Utah Reports, the Washington Reports, 
and the Wyoming Reports to the Reporters; the Reprint of the English 
Reports; the British Ruling Cases; Mew's English Digest; Halsbury's 
Laws of England; the Century, the Decennial, the Second Decennial and 
the Key Number Digests; the Encyclopedia of Law and Procedure; Cor- 
pus Juris; the Encyclopedia of Forms; the Standard Encyclopedia of 
Procedure; the Harvard Law Review; more than one hundred selected 
volumes for the class in Brief Making and the Use of Law Books; and 
more than two hundred of the leading textbooks and books of refer- 

The library will shortly be enlarged by the expenditure of 
u. /.— 9 


$5000.00, appropriated for this purpose by the Legislature of 

Books. — The textbooks used will, in most cases, be found 
in the law library, but it will be necessary for students to 
provide themselves with books for their daily use. Nearly all 
of the books are standard texts and will form a nucleus of 
the student's future library. 

Marshall Debating Society. — It is important that those 
who study law and intend to engage in its practice should give 
attention to the subject of public speaking. To suppose that 
excellence in public speaking and debating is a gift of nature 
and not the result of patient and persistent effort, is a mis- 
take. Believing in the truth of this statement, the students 
in the College met early the first year and organized a society 
that would secure to its members practice in debating and 
public speaking and experience in arguing legal questions, 
as well as drill in parliamentary law. The society was fitting- 
ly named "The Marshall Debating Society," in honor of the 
memory of the distinguished Southern jurist, John Marshall. 
The membership and work in the society are limited to stu- 
dents in the College of Law, but the Faculty give all possible 
assistance and encouragement. 

University Privileges. — The advantages of the other col- 
leges of the University are open to such students in the Col- 
lege of Law as desire and are able to accept them. Courses 
in Constitutional and Political History, International Law, 
Political Economy, Logic, Rhetoric and English Composition 
are particularly recommended. No extra charge will be made 
for such courses, but they can be taken only with the consent 
of the Law Faculty and of the professors concerned. 

Prizes. — Thru the liberality of law publishers the College 
announced the following prizes for the session of 1917-18 : 

The American Law Book Company of New York City: 
Students' Edition of Cyc, 12 vols. Awarded to the Senior in 
attendance for two years whose average grade for both years 
of the course was highest. 

Bancroft Whitney Company of San Francisco: Complete 
Digests and Indexes to Notes of the American State Reports 
and American Annotated Cases, 9 vols. Awarded to the 
Junior whose average grade for the year was highest. 

Callaghan & Company of Chicago: Cyclopedic Law Die- 


tionary. Awarded to the Senior whose average grade in the 
Practice Court was highest. 

Degrees. — The degree of Bachelor of Laws (LL.B.) is con- 
ferred upon those students who satisfactorily complete the 
courses of study. Students admitted to advanced standing 
may, if they do satisfactorily the work prescribed, receive the 
degree after one year's residence, but in no case will the de- 
gree be granted unless the candidate is in actual residence 
during all of the third year. 

Students who have complied with all the requirements 
for the degree of Bachelor of Laws (LL.B), who have main- 
tained an average standing in their law studies 10% above the 
passing mark, and who have obtained the degree of A.B., or 
an equivalent degree, from an approved college or university, 
or who secure such degree the same year they complete their 
law course, will be awarded the degree of Juris Doctor (J.D.). 

Combined Academic and Law Course. — By pursuing an 
approved course of collegiate and law studies, a student may 
earn both the academic and the legal degree in six years. 
(See page 46.) 

Expenses. — A tuition fee of $20.00 per semester, payable 
in advance, is charged all law students, except those taking 
less than eleven hours of work, who are charged a propor- 
tional part of the full tuition. For the first two years of 
the course the required law books new will cost about $41.00 
each year; and for the Senior year, about $51.00. Students 
also are urged to provide themselves with the statutes of their 
own state and a law dictionary. Many of these books, how- 
ever, will form a nucleus of the student's future library ; and 
by the purchase of second-hand books their cost may be ma- 
terially reduced. 

Admission to the Bar. — Upon presenting their diplomas, 
duly issued by the proper authorities, and upon furnishing 
satisfactory evidence that they are twenty-one years of age 
and of good moral character, the graduates of the College are 
licensed by the Supreme Court, without examination, to prac- 
tice in the Courts of Florida. They also are admitted without 
examination to th3 United States District Court for the 
Northern District of Florida. 



The course of instruction extends thru three years of 
thirty-five weeks each, exclusive of vacations. The academic 
year is divided into two semesters, the first having eighteen 
weeks and the second seventeen. 

The method of instruction combines the use of textbooks, 
court rules, statutes, and selected cases. Each case is care- 
fully studied by the student, and in the classroom he is re- 
quired to analyze it, giving in his own language a clear and 
concise statement of the essential facts, the issues involved in 
the case, the law governing it, and the reasoning of the court 
for the conclusion reached. This practice tends to thoroness 
in reading, care in reasoning, and accuracy on the part of the 
student in the art of expression. 

In connection with this case work, the student studies a 
well written textbook on the subject under consideration. 
This gives him a systematic summary of the same, more 
detailed information concerning the application of the law in 
particular instances, and an outline of the exceptions to and 
limitations upon the general principles considered in the 

Particular stress is placed upon the statutory modifications 
of the common law and the recent decisions of the courts. This 
is true in every subject in the curriculum ; but it is especially 
emphasized in Pleading, Practice, and Evidence, as the course 
of study is designed to instruct the student thoroly in the pe- 
culiarities of procedure, so that he will be able understanding- 
ly to enter upon the practice of law. Students are offered the 
option of intensive training under either the code or the com- 
mon law.

The Teachers College and Normal School is a professional 
school, the main purpose of which is to train young men for 
positions in the public-school system of the State as teachers, 
principals, supervisors, or as county or city superintendents 
of public instruction. Its Review Courses are intended to 
prepare for the examinations for County and State Certifi- 
cates. For those not wishing to become teachers it offers 
courses giving the information about and the insight into 
modern educational problems that every intelligent citizen 
should possess. 

Vocational Education. — By Act of the Legislature of 
1917 the University was designed as the institution, under 
the Smith-Hughes Act, for training teachers for Agriculture 
and for Trades and Industries. Arrangements are being made 
to offer this work during the session of 1918-19. A tentative 
curriculum for Agricultural Education has been outlined; a 
curriculum for the Trades and Industries is being prepared. 
It is hoped that a large number of students will register for 
these courses. Many teachers of these subjects will be need- 
ed and good salaries will be paid. 

Peabody Hall. — A description of Peabody Hall, the home 
of the College, is to be found on page 17. 

Library. — The pedagogical library receives many of the 
best educational journals and contains the standard books on 
educational theory, general and special methods, the history 
of education, psych®logy, and philosophy. Additions are made 
every year. 

Psychological Laboratory. — The Psychological Labora- 


tory (see page 21) affords an excellent opportunity to inves- 
tigate the laws of the mind. To know these thru experiment 
will give the teacher greater power to direct their develop- 
ment in the child. 

Peabody Club. — This Club meets once a week to discuss 
educational problems, especially those that confront the young 
teacher. It also brings out the advantages of holding teachers' 
meetings and conferences. All students of the College are 
urged to become members of the Club and to take an active 
part in its work. 

Organization. — The Teachers College and Normal School 
has the following divisions : 

(1) Teachers College. 

(2) Normal School. 

(3) Practice High School. 

(4) Teachers' Employment Bureau. 

(5) State High School Inspection. 

(6) Correspondence School. 

(7) University Summer School. 

State Certificates. — Graduates of the Teachers College 
and of the Normal School are granted State Certificates with- 
out further examination — provided that one-fifth of their 
work has been devoted to professional training and provided 
that during each of the last two years of their course they 
make a general average of eighty-five on all subjects and do 
not fall below sixty in any subject. These State Certificates 
are converted into Life Certificates in the usual way. 


Admission. — See pages 34 to 41, inclusive. 

Teaching Fellowships. — See page 32. 

Degrees. — Courses are offered leading to the degrees of 
Bachelor of Arts in Education and Bachelor of Science in 

Electives. — In order that graduates may be well pre- 
pared to teach two or three high-school subjects, much free- 
dom in the choice of electives is permitted. It is assumed 
that the student will elect the subjects which he hopes to 
teach and will take advantage of his freedom of choice to 
become especially proficient in these. For a list of Elective 
Groups see page 46. For the A.B. degree the major elective 


work must be chosen in Groups II and III, or Group II or 
III; for the B.S. degree, from Group IV. The choice of 
electives must be approved by the Dean and no more than the 
required number shall be chosen without his consent.

following special topics may be mentioned : History of Second- 
ary Education, Comparative Study of Secondary Education in 
Different Countries, The Junior High-School Movement, The 
High School as a Factor in Community Uplift, Economy in

principles, theory, and history of education will better fit any 
teacher for his work, but these without concrete experiences 
and practice under direction will not give the best results.

ducting recitations under close supervision. Lesson plans 
will be required for all recitations, and the manner of teach- 
ing will be subject to criticism. (Required of Seniors; second

school surveys and the use of scales for measuring educational 
products have become a most profitable means of educational 
stock-taking. How to determine what kind of a school a com- 
munity needs, and what progress pupils are making in school, 
will be the chief aim of the course. (Elective for Graduate 

Education XL — Current Educational Problems. — Prob- 
lems vitally important to the success of the teacher. Various

The Normal School offers four courses : 

Course I. — Review Course. — This covers both the contents 
and the methods of teaching the subjects required for County 
and State Certificates and is designed for those engaged in 
teaching from four to six months in the year and desirous 
of renewing or advancing the grade of their certificates. 

A registration fee of one dollar ($1.00) is charged. 

Course II. — One- Year Course. — This covers the same work 
as Course I, but is gone over more slowly and may be entered 
upon at any time during the year. Hours and classes are 
arranged to suit the special needs of students. 

There are no requirements for admission to either Course 
I or II and all teachers who can profit by either are wel- 
comed. The character of the work leading to State a:id 
Special Certificates is described under Course IV; an outline 
of the work leading to a County Certificate is given below. 
The books adopted by the State Text Book Commission will be 
used as the basis of instruction.

The former Sub-Collegiate division of the University has 
been so widened as to make it a practice and model school for 
the students of education. Here student-teachers will have 
opportunity to observe the methods of skilled instructors, as 
well as to practice teaching, under guidance, the high-school 
subjects in which they are most interested. 

Admission. — Only graduates of Junior high schools, or 
pupils who have finished work equal to that of the tenth 
grade, will be admitted. No pupil will be enrolled who has not 
completed the course offered by the high school at his home, ex- 
cept upon the written application of parent or guardian, ac- 
companied by the endorsement of his high-school principal. 
The number admitted to either grade vdll be limited to twen- 

Restrictions.— The pupils of the Practice High School 
are considered boys and are not permitted to join any class, 


society, fraternity, athletic team, or other organization con- 
ducted for or by the University students. A pupil violating 
this regulation will be required to withdraw immediately from 
the High School. Pledging one's self to join in subsequent 
years a fraternity is considered a flagrant violation of the 

Studies. — The work is that of the eleventh and twelfth 
grades of the standard high schools of Florida. Not less than 
sixteen nor more than twenty hours may be taken in any one 
year except by special permission ; all choice is subject to the 
approval of the Dean of the Teachers College.

This division of the College was made possible thru the 
liberality of the General Education Board of New York. (See 
page 12.) 

Professor W. S. Cawthon will visit and inspect the high 
schools of the State, and promote in every way possible their 
development. He will give what aid he can toward estab- 
lishing high schools where they do not exist. Whenever re- 
quested, he will gladly discuss with school officials or private 
citizens any educational matter that may tend toward the 
welfare and improvement of those already established. 


This Bureau was instituted to assist teachers who had at- 
tended the University in securing positions and to furnish 
schools with efficient instructors. At the request of many 
school officials, and because of the difficulty, due to the scarcity 
of trained teachers, that county superintendents and high- 
school principals often encounter in filling vacancies, the serv- 
ices of the Bureau have been placed at the disposal of every 
good teacher in the State. The cooperation of superintendents, 
principals, and teachers is invited. Officials needing trained 
men or women, and teachers desiring promotion or change, 
are asked to call upon the Bureau for its aid. No charges are 
made for services.

Because of the demand for instruction on the part of 
those unable to attend an institution of learning, several cor- 
respondence courses are offered. These may be begun at any 
time during the regular session of the University and will, if 
successfully completed, entitle the student to a certificate or to 
credit towards a degree or diploma from the Teachers College 
and Normal School. Credit for one-half of the work required 


for graduation may be thus secured, altho degree or diploma is 
not conferred until the candidate has attended the College for 
at least one entire school year or the Summer School for at least 
three sessions. 

No minor, unless he is teaching, will be registered for a 
course that can be taken in a high school in his county, ex- 
cept upon the recommendation of the high-schoool principal. 

A registration fee of $5.00 is charged for each course. No 
fee for tuition is charged legal residents of Florida. 

During the session of 1917-18 the following courses were 
offered : 

Education. — (a) Primary and Grammar School Methods; 
(b) Principles and Methods of High-School Instruction; (c) 
History of Education. 

English. — (a) Grammar, Composition, and Classics; (b) 
Rhetoric, Composition, and Classics; (c) Advanced College 

History. — General History. 

Latin. — (a) Beginner's Course ; (b) Caesar. 

Mathematics. — (a) Algebra; (b) Geometry; (c) Plane 
Trigonometry; (d) Plane Analytic Geometry. 

Psychology. — General Psychology. 

Science. — (a) Botany; (b) Physics; (c) Zoology. 

Spanish. — (a) Elementary Course; (b) Intermediate 

For a copy of the Correspondence School Bulletin giving 
detailed description of the courses offered and other informa- 
tion or for registration blanks, apply to the Dean of the Teach- 
ers College and Normal School.

The University Summer School was provided for by the 
"Summer School Act" passed by the Legislature of 1913. 

The entire equipment of the University is at the service of 
the faculty and students. Ample provision is made for in- 
tellectual recreation and physical exercise. The Peabody Lit- 
erary Society meets weekly; lectures or concerts are given 
every Friday evening; the gymnasium, swimming-pool, base- 
ball grounds, and tennis courts are at the disposition of the 
students and an instructor is at hand to direct athletic activi- 

Regulations governing the social life of the students are, 
for the most part, drawn up and enforced by a committee con- 
sisting of a faculty representative and members elected by the 

Regulations. — To fulfil its highest mission the Summer 
School should not be utilized merely for the purpose of "cram- 
ming" for examinations. It is therefore hoped that all teach- 
ers will recognize the wisdom of the Summer School Board in 
establishing the following regulations : 

1. No teacher shall be allowed to take more than twenty hours per 
week of purely academic subjects. 

2. No teacher shall take less than five hours per week of professional 

3. The maximum number of hours per week, including professional, 
vocational, and academic subjects, shall, in no case, exceed twenty-seven. 
Two laboratory hours shall count as one hour of academic work. 

Credit for Work. — Attention is directed to the following 
sections of the "Summer School Act" : 


Sec. 5. — "All work conducted at the said Summer Schools shall be of 
such character as to entitle the students doing the same to collegiate, 
normal, or professional credit therefor, and may be applied towards 
making a degree." 

In order to carry out the spirit of this provision, the Uni- 
versity allows, under restrictions, a maximum of four and a 
half credit hours for work done at any one session of the Sum- 
mer School and recognizes attendance at three sessions as 
satisfying the residence requirement for securing a Normal 
School Certificate or a degree from the Teachers College. By 
combining credits gained at the Summer School with those 
gained in the Correspondence School, it is possible for a teacher 
to secure a certificate or a degree without losing a prohibitive 


amount of time from his work. Certificates and degrees se- 
cured in this way are awarded, when so desired, on the last 
day of a session of the Summer School. 

Sec. 6. — "All teachers attending any of the Summer Schools herein 
created and whose work entitles them to credit therefor, upon making 
proof of the same to the State Superintendent of Public Instruction, are 
hereby entitled to one year's extension on any Florida teacher's certificate 
that they may hold and which has not fully expired, and such certificate 
may be extended one year for each succeeding session attended by the 
said teacher." 

Certificates of credit making proof of the work done will 
be granted by the State Superintendent and the President of 
the University only to those teachers who attend the full term 
and whose work is satisfactory. 

Expenses. — There is no charge for tuition. Board and 
lodging (including lights) will be offered at $5.00 per week, 
or $35.00 for the entire session of eight weeks, payable in 
either case in advance. Those occupying dormitory rooms 
must, however, furnish their own pillows, bed linen, and 


Inasmuch as the courses given during the session of 1917 
were fully described in the Summer School Bulletin of that 
year and were, furthermore, for the most part very similar 
in character to the corresponding ones of the Teachers College 
and Normal School and inasmuch as a detailed program for the 
session of 1918 will, as soon as it is ready, be published sep- 
arately, it is thought unnecessary here to make more than mere 
mention of them. 

The subjects taught fell into the following groups : 

Group I. — Subjects required for County Certificates : Ag- 
riculture, Algebra, Arithmetic, Civil Government, English 
Composition, English Grammar, Hygiene, Orthography, Peda- 
gogy, Physical Geography, Political Geography, Reading, 
United States and Florida History. 

The character of the work was the same as that of the Re- 
view Courses of the Normal School. The number of hours per 
week devoted to each subject was also the same, except that 
two hours per week were given to Physical Geography and 
four hours each per week to English Composition, English 
Grammar, Pedagogy, Political Geography, and to United 
States and Florida History. 


Group II. — Subjects required for State Certificates : Bot- 
any, English Literature, General History, Geometry, Latin 
(Beginner's, Caesar, Virgil, Prose Composition), Physics, 
Psychology, Rhetoric, Trigonometry, Zoology. 

The textbooks used were those prescribed by the State. The 
methods employed and the ground covered were as far as pos- 
sible the same as those in the Normal School, from which upon 
successful completion of any course the student was entitled 
to credit towards a diploma. 

Group III. — Subjects leading to special State Certificates 
or to a college degree : Agriculture, Business, Drawing, Eco- 
nomics, Education, English, German, History, Horticulture, 
Latin, Manual Training, Mathematics (Advanced Algebra, 
Plane Analytical Geometry, Trigonometry, Pedagogy of 
Mathematics), Penmanship, Philosophy (Experimental Psy- 
chology, Abnormal Psychology, Ethics), Primary Methods, 
South American Affairs, Sociology, Spanish, Zoology. 

Owing to the greater number of hours per week and the 
greater intensity of effort than is usual during the regular 
college year more ground was covered than is ordinarily done 
in the same time. 

Group IV. — Subjects of general interest not included under 
Group III : Bird-study, Expression and Public Speaking, Gym- 
nastics, Music, Story Telling, Swimming.

Instructor in Spanish and South American Affairs. — 
The University of Florida and the Board of Control here 
record their grateful appreciation of the gift of three hun- 
dred dollars ($300) from the Carnegie Endowment for 
International Peace. In compliance w^ith this gift, the 
Board of Control has secured the services of a professor 
of Spanish and Portuguese Languages and South Ameri- 
can Affairs for the Summer School. Because of this gift 
the Summer School will again be able to offer attractive 
courses in these subjects which should appeal to many- 
students. (See courses on other pages.) 

Instructor in Bird Study. — This opportunity is taken 
to thank the National Association of Audubon Societies for 
making it possible for the Summer School to offer a course 
in Bird-Study. For this work the Society furnishes a spe- 
cial instructor who will spend one month here, devoting 
all his time to this splendid work. (See other pages for 
outline of course.) 


Gainesville, the seat of the University, a town of 10,000 
inhabitants, possesses numerous advantages. It is centrally 
located and easy of access, being reached by the leading 
railroads of the State. It has well paved, lighted and 
shaded streets, an exceptional pure water supply and a 
good sewerage system. The citizens are energetic, pro- 
gressive and hospitable. The moral atmosphere is whole- 
some, and for many years the sale of intoxicants has been 
prohibited by law. All the leading denominations have 
attractive places of worship. 


The University occupies a tract of six hundred and 
thirteen acres, situated in the western extremity of Gaines- 
ville. Ninety acres of this tract are devoted to the campus, 
drill-ground and athletic fields ; one hundred and seventeen 
acres are utilized for the farm of the College of Agricul- 
ture; the remainder is used by the Agricultural Experi- 
ment Station.

Rooms. — Dormitory rooms are supplied with two good 
iron bedsteads and mattresses, chiffonier or bureau, a table, 
washstand and chairs. All students are required to pro- 
vide for themselves a pillow, bed linen, towels and such 
other things as they may want for their own special con- 

Single men cannot be accommodated in the dormitories, 
but good rooms can be obtained adjacent to the c ampus at 
$1.25 to $1.50 per week. A number of rooms in the city 
can be obtained at $1.00 per week. Men desiring to have 
their rooms reserved in advance should write at once. 

Peabody Hall. — Peabody Hall, the home of the Teach- 
ers' College, is a magnificent three-story brick and stone 
structure. It is modem in every respect as to equipment 
and arrangements. It contains all the lecture rooms, society 
halls, reading rooms, laboratories and libraries that a mod- 
ern college of this kind needs. With such facilities at its 

6 University of Florida 

command, nothing can hinder the college from realizing 
its aims. 

Library. — The general library of the University con- 
tains about 18,000 volumes of well-selected books to which 
the Summer School students have free access. The Peda- 
gogical Library will be of special interest to them, for it 
contains many books on educational theory, general and 
special methods, history of education, psychology and phil- 
osophy. In the reading room are more than a hundred 
of the best general and technical periodicals. Here also 
are received the leading newspapers of the State. 

Psychological Laboratory. — The new Psychological 
Laboratory is placed in the Peabody Hall. This will give 
teachers a wonderful opportunity to investigate at first 
hand the great laws of the mind. To know these through 
experiment will give the teachers a far greater power to 
direct properly their development of the child. The lab- 
oratory will contain all of the appliances and apparatus 
necessary for thorough and efficient work in experimental 

Teachers' Employment Bureau. — It is the purpose 
of this bureau to keep records of all teachers who have 
attended the University who are fitted by their training 
for the profession of teaching and to recommend them to 
school boards who are in need of efficient principals and 
teachers. Already the demand for our graduates and stu- 
dents is greater than we can supply. County superintend- 
ents and school boards are requested to correspond with 
us when in need of well-trained and efficient teachers. 

Correspondence Courses for Teachers. — The Teach- 
ers' College is now conducting several attractive courses 
by correspondence. Write for special bulletin.

University of Florida 

A school for radio operators has been established at the 
University of Florida, which, however, is distinct from the 
college work. Its purpose is to train drafted men to pro- 
ficiency in sending and receiving messages in code on a 
buzzer — like a telegraph operator. This course can be 
commenced at any time, and ordinarily can be finished in 
six weeks. It is open to all men of draft age who are 
physically fit.

home service work in the american red cross 

A class will be organized and a series of lectures will 
be given by competent men and women in the Home Serv- 
ice Work of the American Red Cross. The demand for 
Red Cross service workers is so great at this time that 
it seems necessary that such a course be given, and it is 
hoped that many will take advantage of this course.

It is hoped that all teachers will recognize the wisdom 
of the above regulations. To fulfil its highest mission the 
Summer School should not be utilized merely for the pur- 
pose of "cramming" for examinations. 

Attention is directed to the following section of the 
Summer School Act: 


Section 6 of a recent Act of the Legislature provides 

"All teachers attending any of the Summer Schools 
herein created and whose work entitles them to credit 
therefor, upon making proof of the same to the State 
Superintendent of Public Instruction, are hereby entitled 
to one year's extension on any Florida teacher's certificate 
they may hold and which has not fully expired, and such 
certificate may be extended one year for each succeeding 
session attended by the said teacher." 

Under this section of the law, no certificate of credit 
making proof of the work done will be granted by the State 
Superintendent and the Presidents of the Summer Schools, 
except to those teachers who attend the full term and 
whose work shall be satisfactory to the faculty concerned. 


Section 5 of Summer School Act is as follows : 

"All work conducted at the said Summer Schools shall 
be of such character as to entitle the students doing the 
same to collegiate, normal or professional credit therefor, 
and may be applied towards making a degree." 


All who expect to occupy dormitory rooms, which in 
every case are comfortable and commodious, should make 
reservations as soon as possible.
